GREAT NEWS, PENGUINS!
We’ve successfully reached our goal of 50,000 new downloads of Club Penguin Island to donate $50,000 USD towards protecting penguins and their habitats – and it’s all thanks to our amazing community! THANK YOU.
The contribution that players in the US and Canada have helped us provide will support the Global Penguin Society in the protection of 18 species of penguins and their habitats through 3 key areas:
Improving scientific knowledge on population size, feeding and breeding trends of key penguin species to make recommendations to guide conservation action and protection efforts.
2. Conservation Management
Promoting informed decision-making by governments and landowners regarding the management of penguin species and their habitats.
3. Education & Outreach
Targeting local education and conservation efforts at communities and schools near penguin habitats, including organizing trips for students to visit penguin colonies, involving local communities in collecting data on penguins, and securing protection for important breeding and feeding areas.
Once again, a huge THANK YOU to all of you– we’re thankful to have a community who loves penguins as much as we do. 😀
