Romance is alive and
well on Summerland
ROMANCE is alive and well
on Phillip Island ahead of Valen-
tine’s Day, and the little penguins
are leading the way in the art of
Next Sunday evening the flo -
rists will be packing up after a
busy day, the restaurants will be
filled with couples showing their
affection, and the penguins will
be putting on a song and dance
of their own.
The most impressive perfor-
mance to watch is the ‘full trum-
pet display’, which usually sees
the male start by raising his
flippers and pointing his bill for-
ward, then launching in to song.
The intensity increases and his
body and flippers are raised and
lowered, so the flippers almost
touch behind his back.
When the female joins in, the
pair sings a duet which is near-
ly always synchronised so that
one penguin calls on an exhaled
breath and one on an inhaled
breath, creating a wonderfully
Of all the penguin species, the
little penguin is the most vocal,
and their dance moves would put
many of us to shame.
Their courtship displays are
designed to attract a mate or
consolidate a ‘pair-bond’ by this
show of affection.
You too can show your affection
this Valentine’s Day by adopting
a little penguin for that special
person, and help protect the
world’s smallest penguins.
The Penguin Foundation’s
adopt-a-penguin program raises
vital funds and awareness to sup-
port research, conservation and
the rescue and rehabilitation of
sick and injured little penguins.
As well as receiving updates
about the penguin colony, a
birthday greeting and photo of
your penguin, a free ticket also
allows you and your love to cud-
dle up at the Penguin Parade any
night of the year – and perhaps
spot your own special penguin
marching up the beach!
Since the Penguin Foundation’s
launch in 2006, over $1.5 mil-
lion has been raised for Phillip
Island’s little penguins; funds
have been put towards building
a new Wildlife Clinic capable of
caring for 500 penguins in the
event of an oil spill.
You can show your affection this Valentine’s Day by adopting a little penguin for that
special person, and help protect the world’s smallest penguins. Adopt a penguin by visit-
ing www.penguinfoundation.org.au or call 5951 2800.

celebrated their 60th wedding
anniversary and have described
their time together as being full
of good times and happy memo-
Their romance began when
they first met at a dance in the
Oakleigh RSL in 1953.
Since that time they have con-
tinued to enjoy “tripping the
light fantastic” and still hit the
dance floor each week at the
Cowes Senior Citizens Club on a
Monday night and at the month-
ly dances in the Dalyston Hall.
Dot and Lance were married
at the Sacred Heart Church in
Oakleigh on February 11, 1956.
For many years they made
their home in Mount Waverley

for the past 28 years, although
they have had a home in the
same street for over 40 years.
Both Dot and Lance are active
in the local community and play
golf regularly at Cowes as well as
