Little Penguin

Meet the little penguin - adorably awkward on land, top predator in the ocean.
Species - Little Penguin - Penguin Foundation - Phillip Island

How you can help

Symbolically adopting a wild Little Penguin at Phillip Island means you will become an official penguin guardian. Little Penguin guardians contribute to securing a brighter future for these iconic seabirds by supporting scientific research and conservation efforts.

You will receive a digital adoption pack containing:

- Personalised Adoption Certificate

- Little Penguin 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.
