Pick Up 4 Penguins

4 May, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EDT

Penguins are marine sentinels; they provide scientists with insight into ocean health. Ocean changes impact penguin populations including warming waters and bioaccumulation of mercury in the food web. Entanglement is a major factor when it comes to seabird populations and penguins are no strangers to marine debris. Penguins International is calling penguin lovers to take action to clean up trash in your neighborhood to cut down on the marine debris problem. We encourage you to grab a trash bag and collect at least 30 pieces of garbage in your community, take a picture and tag us!

When you pick up 30 pieces of trash you are not only helping penguins but symbolizing that you stand to create a healthy ocean and the aim to protect 30% of our planet by 2030!
