Pisko Carries On

Acorema Continues its Campaign on Behalf of Sphenisco

Pisco-Paracas, February 12, 2012

Pisko After the terrific campaign , “We Want to Live!”, Pisko is continuing to promote the protection of the Humboldt Penguin’s habitat. Pisko is again underway in schools, at squares, and on the beach between December, 2011 and November, 2012. Pisko and the employees of Acorema have planned a lot of activities. Pisko will appear 15 times with its puppet theater in national parks (1) beliebtes Ptheater des Nationalparks, at vacation workshops (1), and for dockworkers’ children (see also “The Penguin With the Pointy Hat”). It will also have activities at five different schools. The work of the students during all these activities will be put together in one virtual book and, through teachers and school officials, posted publically. Pisko wants to distribute 1,000 flyers among fisherman and have personal conversations with 150 of them. During these discussions the fishers will be asked what positive experiences they’ve had with penguins and what kind of future they foresee for this species. Experiences and viewpoints of the fishers will be published in a “Fishers Blog”. In addition relevant public authorities, societies etc. will be highly encouraged to contribute to the campaign with their own ideas and activities. Pisko Apparently, Pisko now feels comfortable enough during its public appearances that it wants to utilize press coverage better. Together with students and instructors of communication studies, media coverage and spots about the Humboldt Penguin and its habitat will be created. We at Sphenisco are excited about this and wish them much success.

(1) An amateur film of the puppet theater was created at the Jean Piaget School, and another film of a vacation workshop was recorded by Gabriele and Werner Knauf. Both films show with how enthusiasm Acorema works and how much that enthusiasm reached the children who participated. Both videos are available from Sphenisco.
