Oceanworld Manly officially relaunches as Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary
Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary introduces Little Penguins for the first time
Little Penguins are welcomed for the first time to their brand new exhibit, Penguin Cove as our sister company Oceanworld Manly officially relaunches as Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary. To herald the launch, Manly’s iconic Little Penguins have made the journey from quarantine to their new home – the attraction’s brand new display, Penguin Cove.
The brand new Penguin Cove exhibit perfectly captures the Little Penguins native environment – with sand, native grass and plants from the Manly area, and a sand-stone like shelter emulating the Manly shore line.
“Manly is one of the last mainland breeding colonies of Little Penguins in Australia and the brand new exhibit provides a place where visitors can discover this species and their importance to the shores of Manly. While they can usually only be seen in the wild when they are nesting, the launch of the Penguin Cove will allow visitors to see Little Penguins all year round,” commented Kris Lim, General Manager, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary.
Penguin Cove is one of many new facilities and initiatives that have come into place after the extensive refurbishments of Oceanworld Manly to become Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary, including state-of the-art breeding and rehabilitation facilities. Operating under the SEA LIFE banner, the attraction has now launched as a world-class facility for the breeding, protecting, rescue and rehabilitation of Australian marine life.
