Little blue penguins
(Eudyptula minor), the world’s smallest penguin species, standing on the rocks of St Kilda breakwater, Melbourne. Every night after sunset, the adults will come home to their burrows. Current conservation status: Least concern. Threats/impacts include: They are threatened by entanglement in plastic and pollution flowing into Port Phillip Bay. In recent times the drought has resulted in less nutrients flowing in from the Yarra River, causing a reduction in local fish stocks.
