The Penguin Express
Two kiwis, dressed as penguins, driving 20,000kms across 20 countries, in a comically small car, for charityOtago
Josh Brinkmann and Luke Gardener are driving from the United Kingdom to Mongolia through Central Asia in a 2006 Suzuki Wagon R as part of the 2019 Mongol Rally.
To make the trip a bit more interesting Josh and Luke will be dressed as penguins whilst travelling and need your help to raise money for two great charities, The Yellow Eyed Penguin Trust (YEPT) and Cool Earth.
You can read a bit of information about our charities below, or learn more about us and our trip on our website: https://penguinexpress.home.blog/
Yellow-Eyed Penguin Trust:
It's a critical time for the Yellow-Eyed Penguin/Hoiho, the rarest penguin in the entire world, with the mainland population reduced to the lowest it has been in 27 years! The money we raise for the Trust will go towards their work controlling predators, restoring coastal forest along the south-east coast of New Zealand, and penguin rehab through organisations they partner with.
Cool Earth works with groups across the globe to halt rain forest destruction and climate change

We will also be donating approx. $1000 to Cool Earth, a charity that is stopping rain forest destruction across the globe.
