Landcare Tasmania's Peter Stronach and Theresa Chapman joined volunteers from both Cooee-Camdale Coastcare and Penguin Rehab & Release for the Governor's visit.

Both Her Excellency and husband Professor Chalmers had a lot of questions - the Governor has a particular interest in penguin rehabilitation! She was presented with some stories of the penguins that have been in care with Penguin Rehab & Release. 

This was a wonderful opportunity to highlight the important work of these two Landcare groups.  You can find out more about the work being done by Cooee-Camdale Coastcare here, and Penguin Rehab and Release here.
