Support our overall work
An unrestricted donation allows the Penguin Foundation to distribute these funds to priority conservation work.
Support a specific project
With conservation, education and wildlife rescue programs and projects that protect Phillip Island’s native wildlife and their habitats, you can choose to support a specific project with clear conservation outcomes. Project themes vary depending on conservation priorities and can include protecting little penguin habitat, saving Australian fur seals from marine debris entanglements or saving threatened species.
Partnerships support the protection and enhancement of Phillip Island’s natural environment and native wildlife. Partner benefit packages are designed to engage your staff and clients, showcase what your support has achieved and build your brand reputation and credibility.
The priority projects featured in the Penguin Foundation Conservation Prospectus span several key themes, from protecting our marine and coastal environment, future-proofing penguin health, rewilding the Island’s flora and saving threatened species from extinction and form part of the Phillip Island Nature Parks 5-Year Conservation Plan 2019-2023 under its 30-Year Conservation Vision. They are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which define global sustainable development priorities and aspirations for 2030 and serve as a universal framework to foster global collaboration to solve the world’s most challenging tasks in sustainability.
We invite you to become a partner in one of these exciting initiatives and join us in protecting Phillip Island’s remarkable biodiversity today and into the future.

Bank of Melbourne is a major partner of the Penguin Foundation.
Bank of Melbourne has provided ongoing funding and support for little penguin research on Phillip Island. Most recently, Bank of Melbourne has supported a new little penguin weighbridge on the Summerland Peninsula. The 'Bank of Melbourne Penguin Weighbridge' allows Phillip Island Nature Parks scientists to study little penguin feeding patterns at sea, providing valuable health information for their conservation today and into the future.

Other ways to support
If you are not able to make a financial commitment, you can donate in-kind goods or services instead.
These are things we would otherwise need to purchase on commercial terms, so receiving in-kind donations means we are able to direct an even greater percentage of the financial donations we receive towards research and wildlife protection programs.
