What This Flyer is About

This flyer is to inform you about the Galapagos Penguin, a unique penguin that lives near the equator. This is a critically endangered species, and could easily become extinct. The global patterns of El Ńino and water pollution are killing this poor, innocent animal. I hope that after being informed about this, you will try to save this penguin.

What I Will Put in My Habitat

How the Adaptions Will Have a Positive Effect

Galapagos penguins have many adaptions that allow them to survive. They live next to lava so they need to be able to live in intense heat. Most adaptions are used to sustain this heat. One physical adaption is that they have special veins and arteries in their face, and legs that allow them to dissipate heat. Secondly, they are small in size, which also allow them to dissipate heat. Some behavioral adaptions is that they turn the lighter side of their body away from the sun. Another adaption is that when they are cold, they jump into lava crevices. This will have a positive affect in my environment because in my environment, these will be used to the highest potential to help them survive. I'm going to put in some lava, so when they feel cold, they can jump into it.

What is Pressuring the Galapago Penguin

The effects of El Ninó are affecting The Galapago Penguin population. That is because even though they are specially adapted, sometimes El Ninó is a bit too much for them to handle.
