Save our penguins

This summer you can: 

Support climate-change action that will lessen the impact of warming seas on the habitat and prey penguins depend on for survival and successful breeding. 

Support efforts to end plastic pollution through campaigning for a strong global plastics treaty.

Help individual birds to make it through the summer by supporting penguin rescue and rehabilitation centres.
