Help give them a brighter future
Adélie penguins are found at coastal locations along the Antarctic continent, and on a number of Antarctic islands. In the areas most affected by climate change, such as the Antarctic Peninsula where ice conditions are changing, Adélie numbers have declined by 30%.
Penguins are increasingly vulnerable to threats like climate change as they depend on sea ice for krill – their main food source. As parts of the Antarctic and Southern Ocean are warming rapidly, the ice is freezing later and melting sooner.
These precious animals desperately need our help. Your adoption will help WWF to work with governments, industries and individuals to help reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. We encourage them to switch to renewable energy – to help minimise climate change and the warming that threatens animals like the Adélie penguins, their food sources and their habitat.
Adopt today, and we'll take you on a journey to learn more about penguins through our regular updates - exclusive only to our monthly adopters. We'll also keep you up to date on how your monthly gifts are helping to secure a brighter future for penguins.
