• Adelie penguins are classed as least concern with around 7,580,000 left in the world.
  • They are affected by climate change and fisheries.
  • Adélie penguins numbers are increasing in Antarctica. However, in areas where climate change is established, Adélie populations have fallen by more than 65% in the past 25 years.

  • By protecting Adélie penguins we’re helping look after their ocean environment, which is good for all the wildlife that depends on it.
  • Adélie penguins are a vital part of the Antarctic food chain – they eat tiny creatures like krill and small fish, and are a source of food for predators like leopard seals and killer whales.
