These adorable penguin GIFs are just what you need to celebrate Penguin Awareness Day

Penguin Awareness Day is today, Jan. 20. Why is there a need for Penguin Awareness Day? According to Phys.org, penguins are in trouble. Penguins continue to be one of the most threatened species on the planet. Climate change, oil pollution, an insufficient food supply due to competition from fisheries and getting caught in fishing nets are causing a rapid decline in the population of our tuxedo-bearing friends.

In honor of Penguin Awareness Day, we have collected some adorable GIFs to help you celebrate these magnificent creatures and bring awareness to their critical situation.
