To celebrate World Penguin Day, we thought we’d share our favorite photos of our clumsy, cheeky little friends.
Earlier this year, we visited the magical Antarctic as a part of a year-long voyage from pole to pole calling for ocean protection. One of the highlights of our time there was meeting incredible Antarctic wildlife, including whales, seals, and thousands of cute penguins. Because April 25th is World Penguin Day, we thought we’d share our favorite photos of our clumsy, cheeky little friends.
Although it looks idyllic, life isn’t without its challenges for penguins in the Antarctic. During the expedition, our team of scientists found that climate breakdown is impacting penguins pretty severely.
But luckily, there’s a way to help them. As wildlife struggles, we urgently need new ocean sanctuaries in the Antarctic and across the world, so animals like these penguins have the space to recover and adapt to a rapidly changing climate.
More than 3 million people are calling for a network of ocean sanctuaries, and a strong Global Ocean Treaty which would enable it. Together we can make it happen, but we need all of our voices. Add yours today!
