Description

The Adélie penguins (Pygoscelis adeliae) are the smallest and most widely found penguins in the Antarctic coast, which is their only residence. They are among the most southerly distributed of all seabirds, along with the emperor penguin, the south polar skua, the Wilson’s storm petrel, the snow petrel, and the Antarctic petrel.

They are named after Adélie Land, in turn named for the wife of French explorer Jules Dumont d’Urville who discovered these penguins in 1840.

THREATEN BY CLIMATE CHANGE

Adélie penguins in Antarctica are in the midst of a major upheaval as climate change causes their icy habitat to warm up, experts say.

The penguins rely on winter sea ice as a platform for feeding on ocean krill.

But they also need the ice to shrink in the summer so they can access their breeding colonies on land.

Today there are 8,000 birds left from an original colony size of 40,000.

If the trend continues, Fraser predicts that Adélie penguins will be locally extinct within five to ten years.

Why Adélie penguins matterS

Adélie penguins are part of the Antarctic food chain – they eat animals like krill and small fish, and are a source of food for predators like leopard seals and killer whales. So they play a key role in the Antarctic ecosystem.

Help us to stop their colony decline by contributing and adopting a penguin for a year with the WWF. You simply buy and collect this mug and we’ll do the rest.

You simply collect our nice Mugs and make us proud of our work and project, we do the rest and try to improve our planet.

We are members of the WWF UKs business club. Each month we design, produce and sell a special mug with a different endangered animal the WWF is protecting through their worldwide campaigns. Due to the shipping fees and the aim to contain the cost of the mug and keep it fair, we deliver within the UK for the proposed price.

Please contact us for special requirement or shipping in other countries: info@zeroduedesign.co.uk
