Middle Island Little Penguin Monitoring Program: 2013-14 Breeding Season

The Little Penguin Monitoring Program, run by the Warrnambool Coastcare Landcare group is now coming into its 8th season, providing important monitoring data from the Middle Island Little Penguin colony, just off the Warrnambool city coastline.

The program has been in support of, and worked collaboratively with the Maremma Project, which is run by the Warrnambool City Council, using Maremma guardian dogs to protect the colony from land based predation. To learn more background information on the projects, you can find the link to last year’s project page and archived blogs here.

The continuation of these conservation efforts has truly been a community effort with project supporters including the Department of Environment and Primary Industries, Glenelg Hopkins CMA, Warrnambool Standard, Deakin University, Coastcare, and Powercor, as well as  hundreds of volunteers who have contributed countless hours (a tally of  over 2000 hours to date) to the monitoring program.

Last season Nature Glenelg Trust was fortunate to partner with the WCLG and coordinate the monitoring program. In 2013-14 this partnership will continue, and we would like to invite you to support the program too!
