They may look very, very cute, but they’re also on a very, very important mission.

A series of paper penguins have been cropping up all around the world over the past days, and whilst they may look very charming to look at, they also aim to raise awareness about the protection of their home – Antarctica.

Designed by German artist Wolfram Kampffmeyer, the almost-true-to-size penguin sculptures are part of a campaign by Greenpeace entitled ‘March of the Penguins’ (brilliant name, right?). The campaign aims to promote the protection of Antarctica, by turning a large part of the Antarctic Ocean into the world’s biggest wildlife reserve. This would allow for the protection of countless marine animals and contribute to the fight against global warming and climate change.

Charming yet fragile, the paper penguins stand as a reminder of the wildlife we need to protect, as well as the homes they inhabit. A beautiful way to raise awareness, and a global mission to benefit the world, sneak a peek at some of the adorable creatures below – perhaps you’ll even spot your city.
