Let’s face it—penguins should just rule the world. Whether they’re doing conga lines on land, skinny dipping in the sea, or winning hearts on the big screen, these handsome birds can practically do anything (except fly, of course). But the sad fact is, penguins aren’t doing so hot in the wild: Of the 17 (or possibly 19) species across the world, five are endangered and eight are considered threatened or vulnerable, thanks to melting sea iceoverfishing , poaching, and other environmental dangers.
