Penguin Volunteers Wanted

By  |  0 Comments

Spring is around the corner and it’s that time of year when Earthcare St Kilda is looking for volunteers to be Penguin Guides on St Kilda Pier over the next daylight saving period (Sunday 7 October 2012 to Sunday 7 April 2013).


Volunteers are rostered in teams of around 5 members to supervise public penguin viewing at the pier from dusk until around 10.00 pm.  Duties include:

  • The provision of information to visitors on the characteristics and habits of penguins, and
  • Minimising the impact of visitors on the colony through education about the use of camera flashes and white light torches.

No previous penguin knowledge or experience around penguins is needed as all training and equipment will be provided by Earthcare St Kilda to new Penguin Guides.

An induction session will be held at the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron on 30th September at 2pm.

If you are interested in becoming a Penguin Guide for the 2012/13 summer season, please email your name, email address and telephone number to so that we can get in contact with you.
