Threats to penguins
It is estimated that between 5.5 and 14.6 million tonnes of plastic currently enter the ocean every year affecting many sea creatures including penguins. Some penguin species, such as the Galapagos penguin, are now listed as ‘Endangered’ on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
The main threats to these amazing species are overfishing, ocean pollution and climate change.
How is ZSL helping?
Led by ZSL and partners in the Marine CoLABoration, we have created the #Oneless campaign to encourage individuals, communities, businesses and government to reduce the number of single-use plastic water bottles. This campaign highlights the importance of saving and reusing plastic so that we reduce the amount of plastic entering the ocean.
How does an adoption help the penguins?
By adopting the penguins you are showing your love and support for this beautiful species. The adoption helps fund ZSL’s worldwide conservation work and important conservation campaigns such as the #Oneless, as well as providing care for the penguins as ZSL London Zoo and ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
