When we think of penguins, most of us either think of an adorable kids movie with the “Happy Feet” of dancing emperor penguins, or a tuxedo clad flightless bird. And though that may be the case, it's important to know on this World Penguin Day that we acknowledge the amazing work that is done by ASOC to protect these adorable creatures and well as many other inhabitants of Antarctica.
Some Penguin Information
There are 17 species of penguins, and all their natural habitats are in theSouthern hemisphere.
Sadly, the Adélie penguin populations have been declining in recent years due to reductions in krill populations and changing weather conditions in their traditional nesting areas. The Emperor penguins are also highly vulnerable and are predicted to suffer when the world's average temperature increases by 2 degrees Celsius.
How You Can Help
Climate change is real and here are just a few things you can do to help:
Reduce energy use. Remember to switch off the lights when you leave a room
Walk or bike when possible (And just think of the extra steps you can log in!)
Conserve water, install low flow bathroom fixtures, and turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth.
Recycle, Make recycling part of your daily routine. Recycling all packaging and consumer goods is an important step.
That’s why here atPULSEBANDZ In supporting the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition we are not only helping the adorable penguins but are helping to preserve this magnificent continent and all of its creatures.
