Short-Tailed Shearwater

Meet the Short-tailed Shearwater - master of trans-equatorial migration.
Shearwater Rescue 2

How you can help

Symbolically adopting a wild Short-­tailed Shearwater at Phillip Island means you are an official shearwater guardian. Shearwater guardians contribute to securing a brighter future for these incredible migratory seabirds by supporting scientific research and conservation efforts.

You will receive a digital adoption pack containing:

- Personalised Adoption Certificate

- Short-tailed Shearwater Fact Sheet

- Quarterly Newsletter to discover how your donation has helped

* Please note: Gift adoptions are emailed immediately to the recipient. If you would prefer to keep it a surprise and to print and wrap the adoption certificate for a special day, please include your gift recipient’s name instead of your own and do not tick the 'gift adoption' option. You will then need to enter your own email address and the pack will come to you and you can share it as a gift on the date you wish. Thanks for supporting The Penguin Foundation.
