With the species in decline, penguin chicks along the coast of South Africa are crucial to the bird's long-term survival. But many chicks are in danger of starvation, their parents unable to feed them.
To save these birds, International Fund for Animal Welfare and the South African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) have rescued more than 400 chicks this winter, feeding them a "sardine smoothie" that will help them gain strength.
Like all of IFAW's rescue and rehabilitation efforts, the chicks will eventually be released back into the wild. IFAW has worked with bird conservation groups around the world to save penguins and other wild shore birds.
GreaterGood.org supports this current penguin rescue through the Gifts That Give More[tm] program. To learn more, click here.
