Did you know that about two-thirds of penguin species are on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List?
Fishing, habitat destruction from beachfront development and other human activities continue to threaten these endangered seabirds, but biologists Dee Boersma and Pablo Borboroglu are working hard to protect them.
Their latest project is a book called Penguins: Natural History and Conservation. Involving research from 49 experts in 12 countries, this book is the first to bring the world’s leading penguin experts together.
Check out this short video from Pew with Dee Boersma and Pablo Borboroglu to hear more about their work with penguins and the importance of their new book.
