Threats to PenguinsPenguin populations are slowly declining. Penguins like the Rockhopper penguins are now listed as ‘Endangered’. The main cause of the decline is climate change, overfishing and ocean pollution. The main threat that has to be addressed is the amount of plastic entering the ocean. Plastic can easily be ingested by marine animals, which has a profound effect on their health and wellbeing.
How is ZSL helping?
ZSL have collaborated with Selfridges and created a programme named ‘Project Ocean’ which builds awareness around the problem of plastic in our oceans. In the first year of this project, £20 million was raised to help create a 50 hectare marine reserve in the Philippines. ZSL and Selfridges continue to focus on combating overfishing and protecting marine animals like penguins from plastic pollution.
