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.
By helping scientists understand penguins' locations and the effects on their feeding habitats.
Through discussions and representation in government offices and international conferences.
By shaping innovative conservation solutions through our Antarctic Conservation Program.
By improving fisheries management, which is particularly important as global fisheries become exhausted.
When you adopt a penguin, we want you to join them on their journey to a safer future.
Your special adoption gift pack includes a cuddly penguin plush toy, fact book, adoption certificate, Living Planet magazine and WWF sticker.
You'll also receive regular updates on how your kind donations are helping to conserve and protect the world's most vulnerable species.
A penguin adoption is the perfect gift for any animal lover. As well as a great way to inspire friends, family and loved ones to care for nature as much as you do.
We can send this gift to you or directly to your gift recipient. For last minute gifts, you can print a personalised adoption certificate or email it directly to your gift recipient.
