“Who doesn't love penguins?! I'll never forget the first time I had the opportunity to work with them. But the uncertainty of Antarctica’s future keeps me awake at night. It’s my job to help ensure biodiversity here is well managed and well protected in polar regions.” Rod Downie, our inspiring WWF polar expert.

It's #WorldPenguinDay! Tag a friend who loves these iconic birds 🐧

No-one really knows where the name 'penguin' comes from. It may come from the Welsh 'pen gwyn' which means 'white head', or the latin word 'pingus' which refers to the fat or blubber of a bird!

Fantastic news for Amur leopards in Russia! 🎉
.
Camera traps have recorded 84 adult Amur leopards and 19 cubs. A few years ago, the camera trap survey caught 57 Amur leopards on camera. So although this big cat is still critically endangered, this increase indicates that the population is stable! .

This #WorldHeritageDay, join us in celebrating the Mijikenda Kaya forests in Kenya 🌳.
.
These forests are a UNESCO World Heritage Site for their cultural significance but have rich biological and spiritual value too. With the support of players of @peoplespostcodelottery, we’re working with the Mijikenda people to increase the protection of these sacred forests from the threat of human encroachment and unsustainable resource use.

Did you know that only 1 in 1,000 turtle hatchlings survives to adulthood? Their journey to the sea can be made even harder by plastic waste. 🐢 We need world leaders to take stronger action, and faster, to save our oceans.
