These little blue penguins were contaminated by oil after the Rena Oil Spill disaster in New Zealand. They are released into the ocean after being cleaned at the oiled wildlife facility.

Warning: this is very cute!

New photos of the Taiwanese shark fin trade from the Pew Charitable Trusts are heartbreaking.

Image: Hammerhead sharks are targeted, and greatly valued for their fins. A 2009 study in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean found that hammerheads have had a 70% decline in abundance since 1981.

Give a fish a makeover
Okay, this is deep. Very deep. In fact it doesn’t get much deeper. Literally.
WWF is supporting an action by the Deep Sea Conservation Coalition to pressure the UN to implement their commitment to protect the deep seas.
Incredibly, there could be as many as 10 million species inhabiting the deep sea. Species like the Roundhouse Grenadier. The Grenadier may not be the cutest fish around but we think that he, and millions of other amazing species, are worth saving.
What we want you to do is give your very own Roundnose Grenadier a makeover and then send him off to the United Nations with a message that millions of deep sea species - like the Grenadier - are worth saving.
