Celebrating the 50th Conservation Week, yesterday, Columba Keas Oamaru hand 30 hand-painted yellow-eyed penguin cutouts to Department of Conservation rangers as the children visit the Oamaru Blue Penguin Colony for a tour.

The cutouts will be placed from Bushy Beach, at Oamaru, south along the coast to Waikouaiti to encourage the birds to come ashore. Displaying some of the cutouts painted by the children are (from left) group leader Mary-Jane (Kiwi) Kirkman, Boyd Gillingham (5) Jack Hastings (6), Dominic Dry (6), group leader Kellie (Sparrow) Paisley, Alex Paisley (7), Amelia Kirkman (5), Oamaru Doc community ranger Andy Powazynski, Doc ranger Tom Burlinson, and Caylib Kirkman (8).
