Penguin Report for 1 February 2012

The Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony releases a daily report on the number of blue penguins to return to their nests during a one-hour period after the arrival of the first penguin onto shore. During the evening of 1 February 2012, 135 penguins were counted.

If you are in the Oamaru area, and interested in visiting the Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony, they have hourly guided tours from 10am to 4pm, during which you can visit the “Blue Wing” nesting area and peek into the birds’ nests (through a one-way glass partition so  you do not disturb the penguins), and an evening guided tour just before the evening viewing session takes place in the main viewing area. For tickets and more information, please contact the Colony directly.
