Environmentally sustainable lighting at Penguin Parade

Words by: WE-EF

It was exciting to revisit the Penguin Parade project a few years after completion and learn about the positive outcomes of the environmentally sustainable lighting solution implemented back in 2018. Together with Buckford Illumination Group VIC and Stantec we were able to create a safer journey home for over 5,000 of the world’s smallest penguins every night. Additionally, the lighting solution helped to address the issue of shearwater birds mistaking car park lighting for moonlight and crash-landing in the area.

We are very proud of the outcome and will continue considering the application and providing a solution to meet the needs of biodiversity and humans in the space.
