National Wildlife Federation has teamed up with Happy Feet Two to encourage people of all ages to take the steps necessary to learn about and to protect amazing wildlife species such as penguins and wild places such as Antarctica.
Happy Feet Two: in theaters November 18, 2011!
About the film
Mumble, The Master of Tap, has a problem because his tiny son, Erik, is choreo-phobic. Reluctant to dance, Erik runs away and encounters The Mighty Sven—a penguin who can fly! Mumble has no hope of competing with this charismatic new role model. But things get worse when the world is shaken by powerful forces. Erik learns of his father’s “guts and grit” as Mumble brings together the penguin nations and all manner of fabulous creatures—from tiny krill to giant elephant seals—to put things right.

Every Step Counts!
For penguins like Mumble and Erik, global warming is a threat to their very survival.

Did you know?
Adélie penguins such as Ramon are the smallest of the Antarctic penguins. When it’s winter in the United States, it’s summer in Antarctica. That means it’s time for penguins to come ashore and raise their families!
- You can keep track of nesting Adélie penguins and their chicks from mid-November to mid-January at www.penguinscience.com.
