A portion of the proceeds from this print go toward Mystic Aquarium’s penguin research and conservation efforts, here and in the wild. Over the last eight years, the world’s African penguin population has decreased by 42 percent. The penguins at the aquarium have become ambassadors for the plight of the African penguin, often appearing in public education programs and in the media. Through its work with African penguins in both American and South Africa, Mystic Aquarium (a division of Sea Research Foundation) is contributing to a better understanding of penguins in the wild.
