The St Kilda penguin colony numbers around 1300 and is now suffering from its 
own popularity. Hence the volunteer penguin guide program, administered by 
Earthcare St Kilda.
More guides are needed for the season, which started in October and runs until 
If you've ever wanted to find out about the life cycle, habits and problems of 
a Little Penguin, this is the job for you! Guides are there to inform people 
and also to prevent flash photography and use of white light. Equipment and 
training are provided. 
Right now, there's plenty of shameless penguin 'debauchery' as well as dozens 
of fluffy, brown penguin chicks, which inevitably follow. Other, frequent 
visitors to the breakwater include rakali (native water rats) and Chestnut Teal.
It's a rewarding thing to do, and makes a real difference to the safety of the 
colony. A commitment of one evening per fortnight is all that's required, 
particularly Friday or Saturday night.
