  1. I had heard that Canadian Penguins receive diplomatic immunity with respect to any legal proceedings against them. I also heard that Greenland officials are holding 3 canadian penguins against there will, and refusing to release them or honor the diplomatic Immunity status of the penguins. Can you provide more info on this ?


    • Thank you for your inquiry Colin! Unfortunately yes, The Greenland government is currently holding three Canadian Citizen Penguins against their will for reasons that are not clear, but have some relation to a law involving the illegal flight of flightless birds. Apparently, there are still countries who do not believe penguins should be given the same opportunities as us, and further, they do not allow penguins to fly on planes as they believe penguins should remain flightless. Of course the penguins did not know this when they entered the country via Delta Airlines, and were arrested upon their arrival. APCAFB has been working tirelessly with our sister association, The People for the Equal Rights and Ethical Treatment of Immigrating Penguins (PERETIP) to resolve this situation. We will update you once we have further details.
