Three new homes for Emu Bay's little penguins were installed by the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Network last week.

And as the penguin population continues to decline around the Island, the species needs all the help it can get.

Islanders can find out more about the plight of our penguins and how to help at the KI Wildlife Carnival, which will take place at Duck Lagoon at Cygnet River on Sunday, October 3.

Three clay little penguin nesting modules were installed on the Emu Bay foreshore on Tuesday, September 8.

Dr Diane Colombelli-Negrel from Flinders University and PhD student Sarah-Lena Reinhold from Adelaide University assisted Kangaroo Island Wildlife Network's Katie Welz with the installation.
