Support for penguins extends to Altona classrooms

Primary schools students in Melbourne’s west have been treated to some ‘chirpy’ visitors in May.

Altona Green Primary School was recently visited by Phillip Island Nature Parks’ Chirpy Chicks program. Sponsored by ExxonMobil Australia, the program involves school incursions from park rangers who give children an interactive understanding of the daily lives of penguins. 

During a Chirpy Chicks session, children immerse themselves in penguin life through life-like penguin dress-ups, mock-examinations and storytelling. 

ExxonMobil Australia Community Relations Manager Melanie Saliba said that during 2019, the Chirpy Chicks program will again visit schools close to ExxonMobil’s operations in Victoria, including Gippsland, the Mornington Peninsula and in Melbourne’s west.

“Our business has been a proud supporter of the Chirpy Chicks program for a number of years now. The program gives local children a real appreciation of our marine ecosystem and the responsibility that we all have to protect their environment.

“We also support many other local environmental initiatives via our involvement with the Conservation Volunteers Victorian Wetlands Program,” she said.
