Donate to Earthcare St Kilda
Why should I help?
Earthcare St Kilda is a not-for-profit organisation with over 180 volunteers dedicated to protecting the penguins. Every night of the year penguin guides educate the public and ensure visitors are behaving in the correct manner. Once a fortnight penguin researchers monitor the colony to ensure the population is healthy, investigate breeding success and remove entanglements and pollution from penguin nests. To do this, 4 teams of volunteers microchip, weigh and sex each penguin caught along the breakwater. Earthcare St Kilda also run other programs including a monthly breakwater clean up to remove rubbish from the St Kilda breakwater.
How can I help?
Donating any amount will assist us, but as a guide:
By donating $10 you can help Earthcare purchase one microchip so that we can identify one penguin (there are 1400 living in St Kilda).
By donating $15 you can help Earthcare purchase one high visibility vest for one penguin guide.
By donating $30 you can help Earthcare purchase equipment (vest, gloves, grabber, bag) for one volunteer to remove rubbish from the breakwater.
