Plot Synopsis

The world famous Little Penguins of Australia's Phillip Island entertain half a million tourists a year with a sunset parade from the surf to their burrows. But behind the scenes, the penguins' lives are even more interesting. PENGUIN ISLAND uses the latest underwater satellite tracking and BIG BROTHER-style video surveillance to follow the lives of several penguin families who live in a colony where relationships are fraught and survival is tenuous. PENGUIN ISLAND follows the penguins as a dedicated team of rangers and scientists monitor and protect them through the hottest summer on record. Nat Geo Wild showed the U.S. premiere of this series by airing all three hours in a single afternoon on Saturday, November 12, 2011 from 3-6pm ET.
