Hope For African Penguins

Hope For African Penguins

Mystic Aquarium has a leading role in the African penguin Species Survival Plan (SSP) and AZA’s Saving Animals From Extinction (SAFE); two critically important conservation programs that seek to ensure the survival of this endangered species. The population decline of African penguins is due to a host of environmental and man-made threats. For the first time in many years, there is hope that we can finally turn things around for African penguins in the wild. Learn an innovative approach to saving a species and the Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to build artificial nests.
