Help Save Penguins From New Dangers
Penguin chicks are facing a new threat – stunted growth or even death brought on by a mysterious feather-loss epidemic. A recently released report, co-authored by WCS scientist Dee Boersma, details the severity of this new disorder.
WCS scientists have a plan to pinpoint the cause and find a solution, but they can’t do it without your help.
Participants in the third annual Run for the Wild at the Bronx Zoo are raising money to help save penguins, and now is your chance to help make sure that these loving birds of the wild have a future.
Please support WCS’s work to save penguins and other imperiled species.

Female Magellanic penguins are more likely to die at sea as juveniles, which has caused a skewed sex ratio of nearly three adult males to every female, as well as population decline of more than 40 percent since 1987 at one of their largest breeding colonies — Punta Tombo in Argentina: here.
