The RSPCA is urging Tasmanian councils to install cameras for all penguin colonies within their boundaries "as a matter of urgency".
The call comes in the same week Glamorgan-Spring Bay Council requested a report into installing cameras in rookeries at Bicheno, considering costs, risks, privacy and efficiency.
The state government has also formed a Tasmanian Penguin Advisory Group - a body the RSPCA believes could be a vehicle for funding projects to protect penguins.
RSPCA Tasmania chief executive officer Andrew Byrne said installing cameras would act as a deterrent to irresponsible dog owners.
"Little Penguins are extremely vulnerable to predation," he said.

"They have zero capacity to defend themselves from dogs and every effort must be made to ensure there is a clear deterrent for those community members who are responsible for dogs but fail to consider the whereabouts of their pets at all times."
The RSPCA believed the government could "attach a line in the next budget" to provide funding special funds to the Penguin Advisory Group to put into action their decisions.
Fourteen penguins were killed in a suspected dog attack at Bicheno this week. A further 45 were killed in November.
Penguin attacks have also been reported at Low Head, including more than 80 deaths in the lead-up to winter this year, 58 killed by dogs in October last year, and 12 dumped in a garbage bin in June last year.
Both Bicheno and Low Head have formed community groups to lobby for greater protection of their little penguin colonies.
Friends of Bicheno Penguins has raised concerns about a Glamorgan-Spring Bay Council proposal to establish an off-leash dog park near penguin rookeries.
