Climate Change Affects ALL Penguins!

We Humboldt penguins hail from sunny Peru, but there are penguins on every continent in the Southern Hemisphere.

It turns out even movie penguins are being affected by climate change! We just watched the trailer for Happy Feet 2, and lo and behold: ice is melting!

What can you do about it? Take steps now to reduce your carbon footprint, be more conscientious about your water usage, and support wildlife conservation initiatives!

We will continue to #occupyPolarBears until we get a new filtration system in our Penguinarium at Oregon Zoo. This new system will save millions of gallons of water from being wasted every year, plus it will keep our water cleaner and safer for us. But a massive new filtration system isn't really possible for the whole planet, so all wildlife needs your help! Do it for the penguins!
