Port Chalmers Seafood Festival
Tuesday 20th September, 2011Yellow-eyed penguins waving donation buckets in their flippers greeted visitors to the Port Chalmers Seafood Festival on 1 October. Children clamoured to be photographed with their favourite penguin and were invited to visit the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust stand. Here they could see eye to eye with a real (stuffed) penguin and learn more about its life and how to help the Trust grow trees to enhance its habitat. Thousands of people enjoyed sampling the seafood on offer at the festival and were able to learn more about an expert on seafood at our stand.
Many thanks to the 'penguins' who did a great job entertaining the crowds (some were seen doing some groovy moves on the dance floor, which must have been difficult in the suits!) and raised over $500 for the Trust.
