About This Project

There is a large colony of little penguins in the trendy suburb of St Kilda, Melbourne, Australia. These penguins do not travel outside Port Phillip Bay, making them ideal birds to study and understand how they can overcome challenges to foraging and breeding in an enclosed environment. We hope to develop better conservation plans for the impact of El Niño on these fascinating birds living in the middle of one of Australia's largest cities.
