Penguins used to monitor ocean health

AUSTRALIA - A colony of little penguins on Mistaken Island near Albany, Western Australia, is being used to monitor the health of the ocean in light of a substantial dredging program that is due to commence in Albany Harbour early next year.

The citizen science project, led by the WA Conservation Council, gathered some initial data in mid-October and will continue through the before, during and after phases of the dredging program.
