Status of the endangered population of little penguins at Manly

The little penguin population at Manly was listed as endangered in the NSW Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995 (TSC Act) in January 1997 and the recovery plan for this endangered population was approved in October 2000 (NPWS 2000). Since that time, the recovery program has been very active, aided by the direction of the Little Penguin Recovery Team.

This report, completed in October 2007, has been prepared to review the implementation of the plan, and in particular to summarise and report on the last five years of monitoring data for the colony. The review also aims to identify continuing and emerging issues and priorities for the ongoing implementation of the recovery program. The review should be useful to residents and managers of lands around the little penguin colony at Manly, to ensure that everyone is up-to-date on the latest information on the status of the colony and to clarify the continuing direction of the recovery program.
