Did you know our local penguins have been nibbling away on plants on the St Kilda breakwater to use as nesting material? As this foliage disappears, the penguins have been opting to gather plastics to nest on. Please help us address this by coming together for a mass plant propagation session to create a better home for penguins, made from indigenous plants. Disabled access. All ages welcome.
