Phillip Island Nature Park in Victoria, Australia, will be live-streaming a daily little penguin parade for four weeks to "bring some joy" to locked-down Brits.

The month-long series will kick off on Monday 15th February, with Springwatch's Michaela Strachan joining Ranger Skye for the first night of wildlife action. From 8:45pm AEDT (9:45am GMT), you can tune in on YouTube or Facebook to see the penguins, plus hear wildlife and conservation updates that will warm your heart.

Home to an estimated 32,000 penguins, the island sees the flightless birds come ashore just after sunset each night to explore the sandy beach. While residents in the UK might not be able to visit anytime soon, organisers wanted to ensure no one misses out.

Posting on their website, the team wrote: "At sunset, every night (AEST) the world's largest colony of Little Penguins waddle up Phillip Island's floodlit beaches to their homes. Since we aren't able to welcome visitors to enjoy this natural phenomenon in person at the moment, we've decided to bring the penguins into homes across the world instead."

Looking for some heartwarming nature to enjoy from the comfort of your own home? "You can watch on your phone, laptop or if you're feeling extra savvy - stream to your TV to enjoy the little penguins on the big screen!"
