Giving Appeal - New homes for Little Penguins

With your support, we can make sure Little Penguins can be enjoyed by future generations. Donations are vital - please help us reach our goal of $20,000 for the penguins to facilitate building of new homes and help to save their ecosystem.

The Penguin Foundation is teaming up with Phillip Island Nature Parks and the Traditional Owners from the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation, to improve the penguin habitat by conducting weed eradication and planting new penguin friendly homes. The 10 hectare area of habitat between Swan Lake and Summerland Beach is shared by the endangered Eastern barred bandicoot and the Short-tailed shearwater and provides ideal habitat for breeding and rest while on land.

Work needs to start in July so we are ready for their breeding season.

Every donation makes a difference to the work of the Penguin Foundation. Your donation will help support Little penguins by expanding their homes on land and building resilience towards climate change impacts.

Our Little penguins and their ecosystem need our care and protection. You will be helping bring balance to our fragile landscapes to give nature a chance to thrive.

Little penguins bring smiles to both the young and old, along with memories and hope. You will be connecting and enriching lives today.

We need to reach our goal of $20,000 to undertake this work.
