Today is World Penguin Day! Those of you who like Penguins (and everyone should) will be aware that the Penguins have two special days in the annual calendar of events. The other is 'Penguin Awareness Day' which takes place on the 20th January each year.
Today though is World Penguin Day and attention needs to be drawn to the other creatures with whom we share our planet and the problems which they are facing. We are not alone with our difficulties and we are all linked in some way.
Penguins have been having a rough time of it too as Zoo News Digest has pointed out by covering various Penguin disaster stories over the years. The most recent of these is the oil spill in the South Atlantic which has put the penguin population into peril on the island of Tristan da Cunha. Today would be a good time to raise money to help those dedicated people involved in the rescuing, cleaning, feeding, caring and release of these birds.
