Act #NOOW to Help Save the African Penguin

We need YOUR help in the effort to save the African penguin from extinction. As the population of this imperiled species continues to rapidly decline, it has become increasingly important for us to take action now. Help us raise awareness of the global impact of this matter by contacting the South African Ministry of Forestry & Fisheries via the link below. We implore you to ask Minister Barbara Creecy to support the African penguin population and realize the impact of this animal in South Africa and beyond.
