Antarctic Empire of Penguins

As the warm season approaches, female emperor penguins return from their two-month fishing trip, and not a moment too soon. The males, who have been protecting their chicks from the icy Antarctic ground, haven’t had a thing to eat since their partners left, and don’t have much to offer the chicks by way of nutrition.

Another species of penguin, the African penguin, is in desperate need of help. In the past three generations, the African penguin population has dropped by 60%, and hundreds of baby penguins are currently in danger of starvation. You can feed a rescued penguin chick for a full week by donating to our Gift that Give More.
