Penguin Island 3

The Little Penguins of Australia's Phillip Island entertain millions of tourists with their sunset parade from the shore to their nest burrows. But behind the scenes, the penguins' lives are even more interesting. The film uses the latest satellite-based underwater tracking systems and surveillance cameras to portray the lives of a few penguin families. In the colony, the interactions are tense and surviving requires great efforts.
