ENDANGERED SPECIES - Penguins

This challenge closed over 5 years ago.

The Challenge

Who doesn’t love penguins, there are cute films about them, T-shirts with them on and in the UK we even have biscuits with them on. It doesn’t matter where you are in the world we all know and love penguins, but with 13 species on the endangered list you do wonder where has all the love gone.

African Penguin
Erect-crested Penguin
Fiordland Crested Penguin
Galapagos Penguin
Gentoo Penguin
Humboldt Penguin
Macaroni Penguin
Magellanic Penguin
Northern Rockhopper Penguin
Royal Penguin
Snares Crested Penguin
Southern Rockhopper Penguin
Yellow-eyed Penguin

All of these are on the endangered list and this is all down to man, harvesting of penguin eggs, disruption of habitat due to guano scraping to be used as fertiliser, and another major cause, oil spills.

Like the rest of the Endangered series of challenges you are welcome to enter any species of Penguin and these can include captive penguins.
