The Club Penguin Island Team has reached their goal of 50,000 new downloads of Club Penguin Island to donate $50,000 USD towards protecting penguins and their habitats – and it’s all thanks to our amazing community!
The contribution that players in the US and Canada have helped us provide will support the Global Penguin Society in the protection of 18 species of penguins and their habitats through 3 key areas:
Improving scientific knowledge on population size, feeding and breeding trends of key penguin species to make recommendations to guide conservation action and protection efforts.
2. Conservation Management
Promoting informed decision-making by governments and landowners regarding the management of penguin species and their habitats.
3. Education & Outreach
Targeting local education and conservation efforts at communities and schools near penguin habitats, including organising trips for students to visit penguin colonies, involving local communities in collecting data on penguins, and securing protection for important breeding and feeding areas.
Once a again, thanks to all of us for making this possible! Give you a huge hug! 😀
