Mabel created this poster in Microsoft Word and has given me permission to post it here. Unfortunately her fancy font colors and formatting didn’t survive the cut-and-paste into WordPress.
She wants to put some of these posters up around the neighborhood and wanted to know what I thought people’s reaction would be. I told her they would probably laugh and tease her about it, so she decided to take her name off of the poster. I told her that if I put it on my blog people will also probably laugh and think it’s cute, and she said she’s okay with that.

One Piece of ice at a time
Micro Penguins are becoming endangered quite quickly. Most people do not believe in them, but some people, including me, do. If you believe in them and want to help, here are some small things you can do that will make a big difference.
1. If you see a piece of ice that hasn’t been stepped on, very gently take it someplace in the shade that people have already stepped on. People like to step in places where no one has stepped before, so it’s best to get Micro Penguins out of those places.
2. Only step in the snow where people have already stepped. It is better to walk on places Micro Penguins have already been killed than to kill more.
3. Don’t pick up the snow. Your hands can kill up to 20,000 Micro Penguins in one handful. 20,000 Micro Penguins is more than a whole colony of them!
These things are great things to do to help. But trying to save the Micro Penguins doesn’t mean you can’t shovel the snow! Don’t let Micro Penguins block you from doing what you need to do. But try the things above to make a big difference. Thanks for helping!
