Friends of Lillico Penguins
Friends of Lillico Penguins is a branch of Wildcare Inc. which was formed to protect the Little Penguin Colony at Lillico (between Devonport and Ulverstone). For many years we have worked, together with the National Parks and Wildlife Service, to look after the colony by providing volunteer guides every night during the breeding season between September and April. The guides help provide the local community and tourists from all over the world to experience an intimate and natural glimpse into the world of these amazing birds. In addition we provide information on the lifecycle of Little Penguins and activity packs for children. We also assist with the management of the colony in the non-breeding season by holding working bees to remove weeds and replant native vegetation etc.
This information is provided for people to contact member groups about their community Landcare activities. Anyone wishing to distribute information generally to groups should contact Landcare Tasmania with their request.
