Penguins At Risk

EDM number 557 in 2007-08, proposed by Diane Abbott on 12/12/2007.
Categorised under the topics of Animal welfare, Animals, Climate change, Environmental protection and Wildlife.

That this House is concerned at the plight of penguins living in the Antarctic Peninsula; notes that melting ice due to the effects of climate change is devastating the nesting site for penguins; recognises that over-fishing is leading to a lack of food available for penguins; further notes that four species of penguin - the emperor, the gentoo, the chinstrap and the Adelie - are among the most at risk creatures in the area; supports the World Wildlife Fund report which states that some of the emperor penguins' colonies have reduced by half in the past century due to warmer temperatures; and calls on the Government to push for comprehensive and fair emissions cuts at the Bali summit.

This motion has been signed by a total of 46 MPs.
