Social Media is such an incredible connection gift…that never stops giving!
I’ve just come across an amazing person, Dyan deNapoli, on Twitter. According to her Facebook Fan Page (The Penguin Lady), she “presents compelling educational programs about penguin behavior, biology and conservation that are sure to be a hit with audiences of any age. A portion of the proceeds from every appearance is donated to penguin rescue groups.” Despite being based in Georgetown, MA, she is doing wonderful work to help our African Penguins too!
Here’s one of her messages: “Looking for the perfect holiday gift for the penguin/animal lover who has everything? Buy penguin nest boxes in their name and help save a species!! African penguins are in deep trouble and need our help. The population is now half of what it says below – just 55,000 birds are left. You can purchase nesting boxes at http://www.dict.org.za/ But first, watch the short video below to learn a little bit more. Thank you and happy holidays!
Ditto that & thank you so much for sharing, Dyan!
Growing up near Cape Town, with a father who sailed on our national research ships, we were privileged to be introduced to these engaging little birds at a young age. Similarly to Dyan’s mission, my intention is to donate a portion of the proceeds from my first novel towards helping our African Penguins (see My Books page on this blog) 🙂
