Sydney’s secret penguins with Ranger Mel Tyas

View descriptionShare

In this fun episode, National Parks and Wildlife Ranger Mel Tyas introduces us to one of Sydney’s best-kept secrets – the endangered colony of wild Little Penguins of Manly, in the heart of Australia’s biggest city. The smallest of all penguins, these tiny, endearing critters have called Manly home for decades, and theirs is the only breeding colony on the NSW mainland, making them extra unique. Ranger Mel spends her days working alongside and protecting these beloved seabirds in the Sydney Harbour area, and in this episode she reveals their history, behaviours and challenges, and also shares some of her favourite penguin tales (including one about a fella who swam nearly 2000km from Sydney to Adelaide!?!).
