Penguins need Trees


Trees mean shade

Fat and feathered, the Yellow-eyed penguin is insulated for fishing in the depths of the cold sea.  But when the penguin is not fishing, it lives on land.

Under hot sun, the penguin swelters under its thick layer of body fat.

It needs the protective shelter of cool forest. 

Trees mean penguin chicks

The Yellow-eyed penguin is so shy that if another penguin can see its nest, it won't produce chicks. The penguin needs forest for privacy.

One Penguin Chick
No trees means no home.

People have destroyed coastal forest. We milled it for wood and burned it to create farmland.   The Yellow-eyed penguin is one of the rarest penguins in the world and lack of forest is one of the biggest problems it faces.
