Extinction 2026: The Jackass Penguin

African Penguin
African Penguin AKA Jackass Penguin

The African Penguin, also known as the jackass penguin, is an endangered species living on the southern tip of Africa.  According to Wikipedia, there were around four million penguins at the beginning of the 19th century, but only some 10% remained at the end of the 20th century. The total population fell to 200,000 in 2000. In 2010, the number was estimated to be only at 55,000. At this rate of decline, the African penguin is expected to be extinct in the wild by 2026.

I love this penguin and I want my grandkids and their grandkids to be able to enjoy these funny little birds.  Help save a life by adopting one of these little guys at the World Wildlife Fund.
