“Double” the love for Galapagos penguins

I’m supporting the conservation of Galapagos penguins by the Charles Darwin Research Station and 20 penguins need your help. 

January 20 is Penguin Awareness Day and Galapagos penguins are the only penguin species north of the equator. They are so cute but are also the most endangered penguins in the world. In addition, there are only 2,000 of them! They are threatened by climate change, marine pollution and lack of food due to overfishing.

For USD 15, you can support one tagged penguin. In addition to your support, I will DOUBLE this amount. I am able to do this for 20 penguins as I raised funds selling my used clothes and toys in a children’s garage sale. I will also give you part of the special identification number (PIT) of the penguin you support. These are real penguins in the wild tagged by scientists from the Charles Darwin Research Station to monitor them.

All funds raised will be donated to the Charles Darwin Research Station to help continue the scientific work and protection of the Galapagos penguins!

I will run this campaign until March 3, 2020, to celebrate World Wildlife Day. Hopefully, all 20 penguins can receive “double” the ❤️! 

Update: I’m happy to report that I exceeded my goal and donated around USD 800 (EUR 730) to the Charles Darwin Foundation on World Wildlife Day 2020. Thank you very much for helping me with my campaign. Please see the next post for the update.

Thank you!

Galapagos penguins are the only penguin specie found north of the equator. Their survival is threatened by climate change.
