Penguin Numbers for July

As you can see from the graph, the number of Blue Penguins returning nightly to the Oamaru Penguin Colony in July was steadily increasing for most of the month, though the last few days of July saw a bit of a decrease, perhaps due to the wet weather we’ve been experiencing. But before long the penguins will begin to build nests in preparation for mating season, and that should see the usual springtime increase in numbers. For more information, contact the Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony directly.
