Little Penguins Getting Little

The Penguin Post has learned that a group of islanders have come together to express its concern about the survival of the Little Penguin colonies on Kangaroo Island in south central Australia. Representatives of Save the Little Penguins Committee, have written to Department of Environment Water and Natural Resources chief executive Allan Holmes, asking if DEWNR “has a policy to reverse the decline of Little Penguins and then a policy to assist in their preservation and growth”. “It is our belief that if some form of human intervention is not actioned quickly then very soon the current populations of Little Penguins nesting in South Australia will disappear forever.”
