About the speaker: Belinda Cannell has dedicated more than 20 years researching the ecology of Little Penguins in Western Australia, following completion of her PhD (at Monash University, Victoria) in which she studied the foraging behaviour of wild Little Penguins held in captivity. During her PhD she not only conducted her research, but was also responsible for the penguins’ day-to-day care and safe return to their colony. Over these decades she has radio tracked, micro-chipped, tagged, caught, counted, sampled and analysed hundreds of Little Penguins across some 10 separate projects in several WA locations.During her PhD she not only conducted her research, but was also responsible for the penguins’ day-to-day care and safe return to their colony.
