January 15, 2018, people around the world are waking up to pictures of penguin sightings across the globe. The penguins have been potted travelling on trains, arriving at international airports and at iconic landmarks. From Sydney to Buenos Aires and from London to Johannesburg.
Penguins are on the march worldwide
Paper ones, that is. A new campaign by Greenpeace has sent beautiful life-sized paper sculptures of penguins to every continent of the world in an effort to educate people about the importance of protecting Antarctica, penguins’ native habitat and one of the world’s last pristine marine ecosystems.
Greenpeace would like to see the creation of a 1.8-million square kilometre ocean sanctuary in Antarctica. It would be a safe haven for penguins, whales, and seals, and there would be no further industrial fishing allowed in its teeming waters. (Sign the campaign petition here.)
