We are always looking for Penguin Guide volunteers.
Each year, thousands of local and overseas visitors flock to St Kilda pier at dusk to witness the return of our local penguin colony from their long day of fishing in Port Philip Bay, and our Penguin Guides are working to provide information to visitors and to help to minimise the impact of visitors on this wild penguin colony.
Penguin guide volunteers work in a team, one 2-3 hour shift a fortnight from dusk to provide information to visitors about our little penguins and to help minimise harm to the members of the colony.
We run shifts every night throughout the year.
If you want to become a penguin guide, you must:
- Be 18 years or older
- Commit to a minimum of three months of guiding
- Become a member of Earthcare St Kilda
