Adopt a Penguin

(From WWF Adopt an Animal)

The Adelie Penguins live in South Antarctica, one of the harshest regions in the world with temperatures as low as -40c and wind speeds of up to 300km/h. Up to 65% of the Adelie penguins number have declined in the last 25 years, through global warming and the illegal fishing of their main food source Krill.

From just £3.00 a month you can adopt a Adelie Penguin and track its progress thanks to WWF ‘chipping’ 800 of them from being chicks to remotely monitor their weight and feeding habits. Your donations will help WWF to establish a network of marine protected areas in Antarctica, whilst reducing illegal and unsustainable fishing practices in the area.
