Your help for the Humboldt Penguins
and their habitats

The protection of wild Humboldt Penguins and their habitats will only succeed if many people join forces to support this goal. Sphenisco e.V. offers people who want to get involved in nature and species conservation the opportunity to participate in concrete projects and measures for the protection of the Humboldt Penguin directly in the field according to their personal possibilities, interests and abilities. Everyone can determine the type and extent of their commitment themselves.

Together we want to work to ensure that our grandchildren can still see Humboldt Penguins in their natural habitat and that the fauna and flora of Chile and Peru remain as fascinating as they are today.
