From the site:
"This year, The Pew Charitable Trusts is celebrating with three ways for you to support penguins:

Call for marine protections that will help them
Take a fun quiz to learn what species of penguin you are most like
Participate in a live tweet with leading penguin experts.

In less than three months, two dozen countries and the European Union will decide the fate of some of the most important penguin habitat on Earth. At a special meeting in Germany July 15, CCAMLR countries could vote to permanently protect some of Antarctica’s most pristine waters as the largest marine reserves in the world. World leaders are now deciding which way their countries will vote, and they need to hear from you."

I'm looking forward to taking the quiz. This a grand way to celebrate Earth Day and Penguin Day. I really think we need an Earth Month. Thank J L, a fascinating site with many good ideas for getting people involved.

You are a chinstrap penguin!

With chiseled features, the chinstrap stands out among the rest. What you may lack in height, you make up for in personality, and you are not afraid to do what it takes to get the job done. While you’re no stranger to conflict, you are a fiercely loyal friend and companion. Once you pick a partner, you are committed through thick and thin.

Update: the quiz is now posted on the site. If you take the quiz, on your results page will be a Take Action link to help protect the penguins home. For those wishing to take action without taking the quiz (it is fun) the link is:
