The African Penguin species is classified as Endangered because it is undergoing a very rapid population decline, probably as a result of commercial fisheries and shifts in prey populations. This trend currently shows no sign of reversing, and immediate conservation action is required to prevent further declines. The est. global population in 2009 declined roughly 60.5% over the past 28 years (3 generations).

The 2016 IMBD art illustrates 11 bird species. Ten of these species benefit from conservation laws that conserve migratory birds. One, the Carolina Parakeet, is extinct because of lack of protection in the early 1900's. It serves as a reminder for the need to be involved in ensuring the future of migratory birds.

May 14 2016 is International Migratory Bird Day. IMBD is an invitation to celebrate and support migratory bird conservation!

A map showing where reindeers (and caribou, the North-American name given to the same species) live. Climate change is a problem. The temperature, the weather and the landscape are all changing in the Arctic. As the Arctic ice sheet melts, the sea levels rise, eliminating the land that reindeer, polar bears, seals and other wildlife depend on for survival.  Our reindeer population has declined 40% over the past 21 to 27 years due to climate change and habitat disturbance caused by humans.

Sorry kids, Santa is running out of reindeers
