Hello Little Penguins! 🐧

Eudyptula minor are the smallest of all the penguin species at just 33cm tall. They may be small but they are mighty in their resilience and survival skills. They're the only penguins with blue feathers, helping them to camouflage in the water from predators circling above. They also have white tummy feathers which hides them from potential prey below.

Little Penguins are incredible swimmers- they get up to speeds of 6kph and can travel 20km a day in search of food. 🌙 Night time is the best time to see them. They come home after a long fishing trip and cluster at the edge of the water in large rafts, waiting for night to fall, so they can run back together to their burrows. Safety in numbers! They always return to the same nests to their partner and maybe a baby chick waiting for the meal they fished. The main threats to Little Penguins are loss of habitat, pollution and introduced predators.

Here we see our Little Penguins parading home on a moonlit evening. I wanted to capture their cute waddles and cautious glances as they emerge together from the waves. I’m going to give $20 from every Penguin sold in the pre-sale to for their amazing work protecting the Little Penguins.
