Save the date „save the penguin“!

NewsWorld Penguin Day 2020, the same procedure as every year! This is unfortunately necessary, considering the current developments in Chile, in a particularly way. The country is in upheaval, the people are fighting for a new constitution and for the fair distribution of materials and natural resources. At the moment, it is totally unclear whether reforms can be pushed through, and how the developments will affect natural and environmental protection.

Also in this year, the balance regarding protection of the Humboldt Penguin turns out somewhat mixed:  for over 20 years, natural and environmental activists have successfully protected the habitat of the Humboldt Penguin, lastly with a spectacular victory at the Chilean Supreme Court. Nevertheless, they were not able to get permanent and sustainable protection of this ecosystem established.

Sphenisco therefore calls for campaigns around World Penguin Day (25. April), and will make materials available for this. Please check to see if it’s possible to support with a small or large campaign on the fight for the Humboldt Penguin’s habitat at your institution, in the time period between 18. April and 03. May 2020, or even if necessary, at another time. The citizens and the local environmental movement urgently need international support.
Please inform us of your plans.
