Penguin Breeding Season

Warrnambool's Middle Island has failed to see the usual arrival of penguins so far this breeding season.

At this week's Warrnambool City Council meeting, the Middle Island Project working group reported approximately 50 penguins arrived on the Island last breeding season, the lowest in 13 years.

Volunteers took around 101 tours across to the Island last year giving 2,474 people an insight into the penguin Maremma dog protection program.

Six dogs have been managed by the Middle Island Project Working Group during the 2018-19 season with long serving maremma 'Tula' retiring this year.

The Project continues to receive ongoing community support and partnerships to protect the little penguins.
