Little Penguins

Lillico Beach is one of the breeding grounds of the Little Penguin, the smallest species of penguin in the world. This area is managed by volunteers who have made rockeries for the penguins to lay their eggs in and built a viewing platform so people can see them come out at night to feed their young.
