Little penguins are the focus of many community groups around New Zealand. We are providing these groups with guidance and assist with equipment to establish a national monitoring programme.
Our aim is to improve the conservation status of New Zealand little penguins through community involvement and advocacy.
Penguins - sentinels of our oceans
“Penguins tell us about our world in a lot of different ways – and particularly the oceans.
They are on the front-lines of sea change.”
P. Dee Boersma, Founder of Centre for Ecosystem Sentinels
We can't hope for nature to fix problems we created
“The threats to penguins have never been more dangerous to their long-term survival and they have never occurred on so many fronts simultaneously.”
Lloyd S. Davis, University of Otago, author of
“Prof. Penguin – Discovery and adventure with penguins”
