Emperor Penguins and their chick

Penguins hold the unique ability to save our lives

They are sentinels of the health of our oceans and our planet as a whole.

Like their relatives, the proverbial canary in a coal mine, that was the first to succumb to a toxic environment and serve as a warning to the working miners, penguins serve as a similar type of sentinel.

Penguins feed high on the food chain, so they accumulate toxins that build up in the ocean. If penguins begin to have health and breeding problems, it indicates that humans may be in grave danger soon as well.

Which is why we designed this one-of-a-kind youth conservation leadership camp around penguins. The health of this species is critical to the future generations of planet custodians.
