Earthcare St Kilda & the Little Penguin colony

Sunday, 16 September 2018 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Annett

We speak with Dr Annett Finger, Dr Nikki Kowalczyk, and Port Phillip Baykeeper Neil Blake about the colony of Little Penguins that live on a Melbourne breakwater in Port Phillip Bay.  They talk about the circumstances that make this colony unique & about the important research conducted by Earthcare St Kilda.  We'll also hear how a recent industrial fire in Melbourne's western suburbs may pose serious risks to the health of Port Phillip Bay & the penguin colony.
