Antarctic conservation. Seriously.
We donate 10% of everything we make^ to the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition: kicking goals for Antarctic conservation since 1978.
The Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition brings together other not-for-profit organisations including Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Fund and the Sierra Club to advocate for Antarctic conservation.
Did you know that even though Antarctica is officially ‘a natural reserve devoted to peace and science’, less than 5% of the ocean around Antarctica is protected?
Penguins, whales, seals and seabirds rely on the sea for sustenance, and conservationists are calling for a network of Marine Protected Areas around Antarctica.
That’s why we give 10% of every sale to the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition^. Find out what they’re doing to help.
^Except for penguin designs. Those funds go to Penguins International. See below.
For the penguins
Your purchase helps support penguin research, conservation and education campaigns.
When you buy a penguin design from The Antarctic Shop, we give at least 10% of everything we make to Penguins International.
From now until the end of 2020, we are giving between 40% and 50%!
Your purchase helps to fund four major penguin projects:
- Building artificial nests for the vulnerable Humboldt penguin
- Research into vulnerable Fiordland penguin foraging habits
- Monitoring penguin colony populations
- Developing digital educational resources to increase global penguin awareness
Where does the money go?
When you buy something at The Antarctic Shop, roughly 80% of what you pay goes directly to the Australian company Redbubble. They take care of our products and delivery.
Want to find out more about how we work with Redbubble?
After Redbubble takes their cut, we receive around 20% of what you paid.
If you bought a penguin design we donate at least 10% of what we get to Penguins International.
For all other designs we donate 10% to the Antarctic and Southern Ocean Coalition.
Thank you for your support!
