Pandemic is the Mother of Invention

Landau May 8, 2021.

COVID not only prevents, the pandemic also inspires. In 2020, Nicole Bertram (Sphenisco) initiated the "pingutastic" campaign "Encouragement Messages"

In 2021, the Professional Association of Zoo Animal Keepers e.V. (BdZ) had an unusual idea concerning the World Penguin Day (April 25). The federation called on its members to send any photos and videos on the topic „penguins“ to the board on the occasion of the honor day 2021. Many zoo keepers participated.

For every picture and video, which was sent in, the BdZ donated a small amount to SPHENISCO. In the end, the sum reached was even doubled. Result: the video "Happy World Penguin Day" produced from the contributions 

and the proud sum of € 352 for the protection of the species. Thank you for so much creativity, commitment and appreciation of the work of SPHENISCO.
