ADOPT A PENGUIN

Adélie penguins live in one of the harshest environments on earth were temperatures regularly drop to -40oc.  The Adelie penguin has been on Earth for around 19 million years after it split from other members of its species.

Threats To Penguins

  • Rising temperatures mean melting sea ice, which inhibits access to vital nesting grounds;
  • Unsustainable fishing practices are diminishing fish stocks. This forces the penguins to travel further in search of food, which has a negative impact on their health and ability to breed;
  • Melting ice removes important habitat for Krill, which is an important food source for the fish which the penguins prey on.

How You Are Helping

When you adopt a penguin, the money from your purchase goes towards helping conservationists carry out their vital work. In particular it helps:

  • Create and expand marine protected areas to allow the penguins more room to live and breed;
  • Improve the management of Antarctica’s wildlife to preserve the fragile ecosystems;
  • Reduce the threat of illegal and unsustainable fishing to maintain sufficient food stocks;
  • Raise awareness of the threat of climate change to the Adélie penguins.
