Design for Nature

Climate change is predicted to make Phillip Island hotter and drier, so Nature Parks in collaboration with La Trobe University, is testing 50 artificial burrows, in five different designs, to better protect penguins during extreme hot weather. How would you design a penguin burrow to protect our little feathered friends? Explore the challenges little penguins face in a changing climate, the concepts of passive design, and create a little penguin burrow that can extend the deadline on saving this iconic animal.
