Penguin Photo Auction

09 Nov 2016 00:00:00

Charity Penguin Photo Auction

Your chance to own some amazing, exclusive photography!

To kick off our amazing launch, the SEA LIFE Trust is auctioning a selection of stunning penguin photos taken on Macquarie Island to raise money for a future research project studying the impact of single use plastic on these majestic birds.

The project will examine micro plastic pollution in penguins on Macquarie Island, with the results being used as a platform for SEA LIFE to highlight the effect plastic pollution plays on seabirds that live in some of the most remote places on Earth.
