Fairy Penguin Parade, Phillip Island, Melbourne. I had to be guided out by the ranger....in tears. I was sobbing because I was waiting for all the penguins to return to their chicks. Some die while gathering food. The little chicks were calling and when it is too dark, pretty sure, the parents won't be back and the chicks can't fend for themselves. I shouldn't ask too many questions....Still, it is SO CUTE to see them all waddle up the beach
The Tasmanian Conservation Trust's Penguin Jumpers Project: "Over 15,000 jumpers were collected, which will be stored in Oil Spill Response Kits around Tasmania. In the case of a major oil spill, these jumpers will be used to help rehabilitate Little penguins (Eudyptula minor) that have been oil affected."
