Little blue penguin (Eudyptula minor) distribution – Kernel density
Little blue penguins are found throughout Far North waters, yet they remain largely unstudied. The TriOceans team drives pre-planned transect lines to cover Far North waters evenly whilst searching for target species. This allows for reliable population and distribution estimates, which can be compared by year and season. The TriOceans little blue penguin database has been built over 10 years, containing over 3000 individual penguin sightings!
