Penguins once had a safe home in New Zealand. But today they are in crisis with five of our six species now classified as threatened.

Forest & Bird is Aotearoa/New Zealand's leading independent conservation organisation.

We are nature's voice and work to defend nature – across our Land, Fresh water, Oceans and Climate. But we can't do it without your support.
