Organisers of a livestreamed daily penguin parade hope that it can “bring some smiles” to the UK.
Phillip Island Nature Park (PINP) in Victoria, Australia – an island which is home to an estimated 32,000 little penguins, will be broadcasting the birds’ parade from February 15 for a four-week livestream season.
PINP chief executive Catherine Basterfield said: “We hope that we can bring some smiles to our friends in the UK, all the way from Phillip Island”.
The wildlife event will stream live at around 10am daily in the UK, and will feature commentary from the park’s rangers, with guest commentators including Ray Mears scheduled to appear virtually.
The penguin parade streaming sessions previously took place during Victoria’s Covid-19 lockdown, and were viewed by more than 25 million people.
Live Penguin TV will be available to view from the park’s Facebook Page and YouTube channel daily.
