The Little Penguin population at North Sydney Harbour nests in rock falls and rocky shorelines mostly occurring on un-reserved land. The main threats to the population are predation by dogs, cats and foxes, loss of suitable habitat and disturbance at nest sites.

The Little Penguin (Eudyptula minor) is relatively common in the waters of southern Australia, breeding mainly on offshore islands. The colony in North Sydney Harbour represents a small fraction of the NSW population, but it is the only known breeding colony on the mainland in NSW.
