The unique emperor penguin is being driven extinct by the melting of sea ice in Antarctica. Star of "March of the Penguins" and "Happy Feet," this charismatic bird needs sea-ice habitat to raise its chicks.

The federal government is considering protecting this penguin as an "endangered species" because global warming is melting its icy Antarctic home. This protection will help protect the penguin from harm and encourage government action to fight climate change.

Slowing climate change to prevent the melting of ice sheets in Antarctica is critical to maintaining a safe climate.


Please sign the petition below urging the government to protect the emperor penguin from climate change.
