Project Penguin: Manly Vale Habitat Day Blog
Friday 15th June 2012
Penguins, penguins, little Blue Penguins. On Wednesday the 9th of May 5/6 of Manly Vale P.S. went to Little Collins Beach. Two lovely volunteers from the Zoo and the Bushcare Regeneration Group talked to us about weeds, native plants and plants that provide shelter for the penguins. We then walked to Manly Beach. Along the way we saw penguin footprints in the sand. We had a quick recess then we met Sue, a penguin warden and Judy from the Manly Environment Centre. They told us about the Critical Penguin Habitat and what threats our Little Penguins face. We looked for signs about the penguins then we combed the beach for rubbish. We chatted about the great day we had as we walked back to the bus.
