Climate change is threatening our frosty friends
Adélie penguins live along the Antarctic coast and on a number of Antarctic islands. But as parts of the oceans warm rapidly from climate change, the krill population that penguins depend on for food has been devastated. Increased fishing pressures is also threatening this vital food source.
Marine pollution, particularly microplastics, is another danger. Along with the invasive species that have arrived on Antarctic ships, which penguins haven't evolved to defend themselves from. Now, penguin numbers have decreased by as much as 30% in some areas. We can't let this continue.
Adopting a penguin today can help protect them from extinction. Your monthly donations will symbolise your support for conservation and animal advocacy, and ensure penguins remain part of our environment forever.
And for each penguin you assist, you'll help a host of other species too.
