Climate Adaption Strategy for the Little Penguins


Penguin Island’s Little Penguin colony has undergone a precipitous decline over the past decade. Between 2007 and 2019, the number of penguins in the colony is estimated to have decreased by 80% (Cannell 2020). This strategy identifies the potential interventions that may be implemented to mitigate the effects of limited prey availability, reduced rainfall, high ambient temperatures, and reduced reproductive performance.
