Media Releases 2013

Posted on 11/12/2013 by Phillip Island Nature Parks

Can’t bear to face the Christmas shopping crowds, the assault of carols at every turn or the saccharine smiles of service staff who haven’t seen daylight in days? The solution is simple – give ‘em the bird!

Adopt-a-penguin for your friends, family and that hard to buy for cousin and you’ll not only avoid a case of ‘silly seasonitis’, but all proceeds go to the Penguin Foundation and penguin conservation, research and wildlife rescue on Phillip Island.

Give ‘em the bird and there’ll be no need to suffer through Jingle Bells at the shopping centre at 1am while you fight for the last shortbread hamper for Aunty Betty and Uncle Harry. Just give ‘em the bird.

Each adopt-a-penguin gift includes a personalised thank you card, adoption certificate and fact sheet, e-newsletter updates from the penguin colony, one entry voucher to the Penguin Parade and invitation to a member’s only open day.

Visit or call 5951 2800 today to adopt-a-penguin and preserve your silly season sanity.
