Drusillas Park in East Sussex has handed over £1,000 to Falkland Conservation, to assist the wild penguin populations of the South Atlantic.

The sum was raised over the last 12 months through visitors.

The charity seeks to help wildlife based on and around the Islands, rescuing oiled penguins and studying the native wildlife.

Thousands of penguins nest in the Falklands every summer representing five of the world’s seventeen species; King, Gentoo, Rockhopper, Macaroni and Magellanic.
