Penguin Conservation

Did you know that Ripley’s Penguin paintings help save African penguins in the wild? A portion of each painting sold is donated to The Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds. This non-profit seabird rehabilitation center, based in Cape Town, South Africa, has treated over 85,000 birds since forming in 1968!
