Stepping off the Manly Ferry at dusk, Sara was finally ready to unwind after a long day at the office. Having signed off from her last work-related call of the day, she was looking forward to relaxing at home with her partner and small daughter. But as she walked past the boardwalk by the wharf, she stopped to get a quick glance of her favourite friends – the Little Penguins.
Volunteer Penguin Warden Scheme
In 2005 National Parks called for volunteers from local community and from wildlife carer organisation to help establish a team of people for the 2005/6 breeding season following destruction of nests and eggs on a couple of beaches plus predation of penguins by dogs.Manly Wharf and Federation Point became focal points for crowd control over public holidays – penguins were made known in local press and crowds wanting to see the Penguins have increased.
