Save Penguins from Extinction

13 out of 18 species of penguin are threatened or endangered and all are in steady decline and face extinction. While there are a number of factors responsible, overfishing is one of them.

Penguins, whales, seals, albatrosses and petrels depend on krill as a food source; but the population of krill, a tiny crustacean, is in danger from the growing demand for health supplements and food for fish farms. Most krill fished are used as fish-farm feed and to produce Omega 3 oil and other health supplements.

If pengiuns are to survive a possible extinction, they must have an available food source. We ask Aker BioMarine to put a moritorium on krill fishing and give pengiun populations time to recover.
