As part of its ongoing commitment to support conservation and environmental initiatives, Penguin Random House ANZ will provide funding to the Penguin Foundation.
As a not-for-profit organisation, The Penguin Foundation relies on support from individual donors and corporate partners to protect and enhance the natural environment of Phillip Island. Donations are also vital in funding rescue and rehabilitation of Little Penguins and other native species and their habitats on Phillip Island (Millowl). The support from PRH ANZ will be used for Little Penguin research projects.
‘At PRH, we have a strong focus on sustainability and green initiatives so we feel this partnership was a perfect fit for us,’ says Julie Burland, CEO of PRH ANZ. ‘The work the Foundation does to look after the 40,000 Little Penguins is incredible and we are very proud to be a part of it. And of course, we just happen to be particularly fond of Penguins.’
According to Georgia Symmons, Executive Officer of the Penguin Foundation, partnerships of this nature ‘are helping to protect our unique environment for future generations.’
‘This partnership supports research and conservation projects which make a difference to Little Penguins, threatened wildlife and the ecosystem that surrounds and sustains them on Phillip Island.’
The Penguin Foundation and Phillip Island Nature Parks teams are looking forward to working with Penguin Random House now and into the future and we are most appreciative of the enthusiasm and support shown by PRH.
