Conservation with a Bit of Muscle
From the department of “Now I’ve Heard Everything” comes a story that involves snipers protecting penguins. Seriously. Granted, the snipers are there to shoot foxes that are predating on Little Penguins Eudyptula minor (often called Fairy Penguins in Australia), the world’s smallest penguins, but, still, snipers being used for conservation is pretty darn cool. I’ve got to get to Australia someday, both to see the penguins and to thank the people of Manly, New South Wales, for being such robust conservationists!
