Endangered Penguins Get Help – level 1

04-01-2018 07:00

There is a special bird colony. People care for African penguins there. They take care of about 3,500 penguins. These birds are endangered.

A doctor explains why. First, people take their eggs. They also take their poop to use for other things. Second, the penguins like to eat only two types of fish. Fishing and the weather change where the fish live. There are fewer of these fish now.  The penguins have less food to eat.

However, there are more penguins now. People are helping them get better.

Difficult words: colony (a group), endangered (there are not many of these animals in the world).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
