A high quality, signed A4 print of my Humboldt penguin pen drawing, ready to be framed and hung in the perfect spot in your home.
For every Endangered print sold, a tree will be planted in the Albertine Rift forests of Uganda as part of a wildlife habitat restoration project in partnership with the Jane Goodall Institute.
Like most penguins, the Humboldt penguin doesn’t hang out on icebergs in the South Pole and, in fact, prefers the warmer climes of Peru and Chile. There are eighteen species of penguin, and only two of those live in Antarctica - who knew?!
Humboldt populations are declining. Overfishing has made it difficult for them to find food, they killed for their skin and blubber, and they are taken from the wild for the pet trade. People even want to steal their poop, which you wouldn’t think would be a problem but the Humboldt’s poop, mixed with other bird and seal poop, creates a substrate that the penguins use to build their nests. Unfortunately, it is also a great fertiliser.
To help prevent over-harvesting of guano (the poop concoction), organisations are protecting important parts of the Humboldt’s habitat and working with harvesters to ration the amount of guano they take for their crops. In some locations, penguins have also been given artificial nest boxes, which has helped to reduce the number of abandoned nests.
This listing is for the print only; it does not include a mount or frame.
Your print will be protected by a sheet of greyboard and packaged in compostable film.
