Here is a cute little penguin for the Penguin Awareness Day.
To celebrate the Penguin Awerness Day I wanted to share with you some threats these birds are facing now from penguins-world.com:
Penguins are slow and clumsy animals on land, reproduce at ages older than other birds, usually lay 1 or 2 eggs per clutch and are very susceptible to changes in climate. The species most vulnerable to threats are those that live near the coasts because they are at the expense of more predators and the consequences of human activities.
In this sense, a threat is any factor that contributes to endangering the life of penguins. There are many, but the main ones are:
Penguin hunting lasted several centuries from their discovery, to obtain from them fat, flesh, skin, feathers and occasionally bones and fins.
Penguins have had to endure that many species of fish and squid are common targets of the fishing industry, so food availability is reducing for them.
It is no secret that global temperatures have been rising for several years, which has caused an increase in the level of the oceans, the melting of sea ice and glaciers and the decline in food sources of some animals, that will affect penguins.
Ocean water is often contaminated with trash from ships or dragged from the coast by currents, which, in addition to damaging the balance of marine water that disrupts penguins’ prey life, it can directly affect them. On many occasions, carcasses have been found with plastic trash in their stomach or entangled in his body.
It is not common in Antarctica, but in some areas where artisanal fishing is common, some penguins may get accidentally trapped in the nets.
In some regions, penguin habitats are being altered by the construction of roads, bridges and other types of buildings, reducing the natural space to which they are adapted to live.
Here is one more cute little penguin for the Penguin Awareness Day . I took this photo years ago. It was edited in @enlightphotofox one of my favorite editing apps. I added the lens flair using @acolorstory app.

Este es un recuerdo de un día que pude acariciar uno durante una grabación en Univision, realmente son muy tiernos y suavecitos. #penguinday#penguin#pinguino#lovemyjob
Hello Fellow Social Media Users,
My first published interview for the year is a good’un indeed!
I caught up with author Chloe Hooper late last year, to discuss her latest true-crime book, ‘The Arsonist’. Founded on posing the seemingly simple question – what kind of person deliberately lights a fire? Hooper seeks answers through the case of the Black Saturday Tragedy, a devastating firestorm that swept through rural Victoria in 2009, leaving untold property damage, several lives lost and hundreds of others forever altered.
As told through the lens of the Arson Squad’s investigation, from the immediate wake of the blaze and through their apprehension of local loner and unlikely archvillain, Brendan Sokauluk and ultimately his conviction.
Not one to shy away from wholly depicting the unadulterated truth, Hooper details Sokauluk’s own tragic provenance and traces what ultimately results in him becoming the eponymous arsonist.
Was a great chat indeed, Chloe was the loveliest of humans, so get reading now and get your hands on a copy of ‘The Arsonist’ asap!
Each African penguin has its own unique vocalization that distinguishes it from the rest of the population. If you’re Freddie, you can also identify him by his waddle. This bird has some swagger because of the way he holds his weight.
Our African penguins are members of the Zoo’s Animal Ambassador program. They’ve been busy raising awareness for their wild and very much endangered counterparts, other penguin species and the importance of ocean health during many of our private events and special events for our visitors, such as Penguins and Pancakes. #PenguinAwarenessDay#Africa#penguin#bird#endangered (📹/📸: Audrey Harmon and Annabelle Sorenson, bird crew)

안녕하세요. EYLN입니다 :)
@do0zzing 님의 지목으로 #분홍빛챌린지 에 참여하게 되었습니다.
#분홍빛챌린지 는 #유기동물보호소지원센터 @asc_kr 에서 #클로렌즈 @klorenzkr 의 후원을 받아 진행하는 프로젝트로 안락사가 가장 많이 일어나는 #제주도#유기동물 들을 위한 프로젝트입니다. ‘반려동물’을 주제로 글,그림,캘리,사진,연주의 다양한 창작물을 만들어 봄으로써 사람들이 한번쯤 반려동물의 의미와 공존에 대해 생각하게 하는게 목적인 프로젝트라고 합니다.
제 작업으로 이 챌린지의 의도와 맞는 도움이 되었으면 좋겠습니다!
저는 따로 지목은 하지 않겠습니다
저와 같이 뜻을 하고싶은 분들은 함께 자발적으로 그림을 그려주시면 감사하겠습니다🤗
