Placard with All Penguin Species Published

Landau, 30 March 2014.

Schüling Publishing Company (Schüling Verlag) presents a placard with all 18 species of penguins, all sized to scale. The illustrations were created by Frithjof Spangenberg, a free-lance illustrator living in Koblenz. The placard comes in DIN standard “A2” format (59.4 cm x 42 cm), is laminated, and thus can be hung in a feed kitchen. It costs 9.80 Euro, plus 5.00 Euro shipping costs.

For each placard sold, Schüling Publishing Company will send one Euro to Sphenisco. We thank them very much for their support and therewith associated recognition of our work.

Humboldt Penguins and other Marine Mammals as Trash

- Chilean Researchers Break Taboo and Gather Data for the First Time -

Algarrobo 13. February 2014.

Dr. Alejandro Simeone, Professor at the University Andres Bello in Santiago, had taken the initiative in 2012, with support from Sphenisco, and collected data for the first time on the by-catch and discarding of Humboldt Penguins in fisher nets. The discarding of the protected Humboldt Penguin as well as other marine mammals is a taboo and is a controversial issue in Chile (also see the report “Over 1,000 Dead Penguins – Just Collateral Damage?”, from 02.April 2009, on this website).
