What’s Current This Week: Vol. 3

Here’s the third installation of What’s Current, rounding up the best photos, videos and stories on social media this week.

If you have anything you would like to see featured on this blog, you can post it on our Facebook wall or tweet it at us and I’ll take a look! Last week we had some amazing submissions… stay tuned to see them in a blog of their own!

That being said, here’s what’s current on the internet this week:

First on our list is this incredible photo of a penguin on its way to the top.

And last but not least, this petition from our friends at WWF, who are on a mission to help save the world's smallest porpoise. With fewer than 200 individuals left, the vaquita porpoise is on the brink of extinction.

Please consider signing this petition to ask Mexico’s new president, Enrique Peña Nieto, to take the necessary steps in order to protect the vaquita’s natural habitat.

Sign the petition here.
