1. Nesting boxes provide safe homes for penguins when their usual habitat is in short supply, perhaps due to human development or natural erosion, or perhaps because it is the safest place to nest and avoids them having to cross roads.

  4. This video has been made by LEARNZ, the wonderful virtual field trip people, with help from the West Coast Penguin Trust and their Ranger, Reuben Lane.
    Blue penguins would have lived around the coast of New Zealand, including the West Coast, long before humans came along but unfortunately for the penguins, as for many NZ birds, humans brought trouble. From land development to cars, stoats and ferrets to dogs, as well as dangers at sea such as fishing nets and oil spills, there are many threats facing these smallest penguins.
    This video is linked to the West Coast Penguin Trust's education resource "Blue Penguins and other Seabirds" and the following activities: "Mapping Your Beach", "Help Korora!", "Web of Life", "Explore Alternatives" and "Waddle You Do?".
