The Council’s Natural Resource Management team dodged the rain during the last week of October 2022 to place 30 new Little Penguin breeding boxes on one of our most populated breeding sites. The breeding boxes had been painted with non-toxic, water-based paints as part of a community workshop run at Hive during the recent school holidays.
There were several unpainted breeding boxes already on the chosen site and all of these were occupied with incubating Little Penguins. Now that the new breeding boxes have been settled into the landscape, we hope the penguins love them as much as we do!
Let’s wish our tiny penguin families all the best and hope their babies are warm and snuggly in the newly supplied boxes.
And please remember to SLOW DOWN when driving on any of our coastal roads during dusk to dawn.
A squished penguin makes for a sad day ☹
