An open letter from Dr. Dee-Penguins need your help!
5:33 PM (46 minutes ago)

This isn’t a penguin update but I could sure use a computer vote from you, your friends, and many, many children. The Global Penguin Society that we started a few years ago and the Penguin Project have teamed up and our funding from Disney depends on the number of votes. Please go to the website and vote for the penguins.

Helping the penguins has never been so easy. Disney Amigos por el Mundo is letting the public vote on which project to dedicate their conservation funds. The penguins need your vote.  As you know penguins are a species facing great perils. The Global Penguin Society and the Penguin Project needs your votes to get help from Disney to conduct research into where and how penguins live, and determine the best ways to care for these animals at sea and on land. One of the best ways to help penguins is through educational workshops and personal experiences that change people’s behavior. Our funds will help with research but also the funds will bring children that live near penguin colonies out to learn about the penguins so they can become their guardians.  There are several projects that are competing for Disney funds so we urge you to vote for the penguins.

VOTE NOW by going to the link below and clicking on the “Proteger a los pingüinos” box underneath the Emperor penguin picture.

Best Wishes,
