The world famous Little Penguins of Australia’s Phillip Island entertain half a million tourists a year with a sunset parade from
the surf to their burrows. But behind the scenes, the penguins’ lives are even more interesting. Penguin Island uses the latest
underwater satellite tracking and Big Brother-style video surveillance to follow the lives of several penguin families who live in a
colony where relationships are fraught and survival is tenuous. Over six half-hour episodes, Penguin Island follows the penguins
as a dedicated team of rangers and scientists monitor and protect them through the hottest summer on record.
