From just £3.00 a month you can adopt the Adélie penguins. Your money will help the WWF to safeguard the future of the marine environment in general and to protect this endangered species, and to tackle some of the biggest conservation challenges facing our world today.
The colony that the Adélie penguins for adoption belong to is located at the Dumont d’Urville base on Pointe Géologie archipelago, in an area of the Antarctic known as Adélie land. WWF will follow the lives of five Adélie penguins in particular which are representatives for all of the colonies of Adélies in the Antarctic that the WWF work helps, although their research scientists will monitor the whole colony of approximately 500-600 individuals, and they hope to introduce new adopted penguins over time.
By adopting the Adélie penguins through the WWF penguin adoption scheme you will receive a WWF penguin adoption pack, which will include the following items:
- A gorgeous soft toy of your penguin
- Your penguin adoption certificate
- A penguin factbook
- Stickers and bookmarks
- Updates on your penguin 3 times a year in My Penguins magazine
- Updates on the conservation efforts of the WWF in the 4-monthly newsletter called Wild World
- Tips on how you can lead a greener lifestyle
- and more…
Animal adoptions can make wonderful ethical gifts so why not treat a friend or family member to one of the wonderful WWF adoption packs and be safe in the knowledge that you have contributed towards helping the Adélie penguins to survive.
