Antarctic penguin conservation

Penguins are one of our most iconic and loved species for people around the world. Working with our partners, we have been gathering data to help protect their future, which we want these incredible creatures to remain a part of - we're here to help them and so can you.

Creating a lifeline for penguins

“Penguin Lifelines” is a collaboration between ZSL and Oxford University that ran to 2014 researching the threats to Antarctic penguins. Using conservation technology such as camera traps in the field combined with our scientists looking at the genetics of penguin feathers, we were able to get a complete picture of how penguin populations are changing. Our findings will be used to inform future policy and help make the public aware of the impacts of climate change.

For life everywhere

From the depths of Antarctica to sunny Spain, we are working everywhere to protect species and restore vital ecosystems.
