Residents call for penguin action on Kangaroo Island

A group of islanders have come together to express its concern about the survival of the Little Penguin colonies on Kangaroo Island.

Representatives of Save the Little Penguins Committee, have written to Department of Environment Water and Natural Resources chief executive Allan Holmes, asking if DEWNR “has a policy to reverse the decline of Little Penguins and then a policy to assist in their preservation and growth”.
“It is our belief that if some form of human intervention is not actioned quickly then very soon the current populations of Little Penguins nesting in South Australia will disappear forever.”

Residents interested in lending their support can contact Andrew Duncan 8553 2011 or Deidre Morrison 8553 0088.
