List of Demands

You humans may have noticed that the #Occupy movements have published a list of demands.
It's nice that they are getting more focused, yet again* following in the footsteps of the perspicacious and progressive penguins of the #OccupyPolarBears movement.

We have been very clear in our demand: a new filtration system in the Penguinarium at Oregon Zoo, which will save 7 million gallons of water each year.

The idea of a list of demands has us thinking, though. Perhaps we need to think bigger than our own Penguinarium. Think Global, Act Local, right?

So here it is: our penguin demands:

1. Stop wasting water, people. Water is our single greatest resource on this planet, and animals need clean water just like you do. Here are some water-conservation tips.

2. Climate change is affecting more than just polar bears. You don't think rising sea levels affect us shore birds? Well it does! So take a moment and think about what you can do to reduce your carbon footprint. If you can't think of anything, here are some ideas for you. Speaking of climate change,

3. End the media blackout! Penguins want more attention! We're cute, we're smart, and we live right by the world's oceans. Why can't we become the poster animal for climate change? Polar bears get all the attention. Even Twitter tried to shut us down!

4. Two words: More. Fish.


*We've been occupying Polar Bears since October 2010!
