Over 2,000 copies of "A Piggy's Tale" have now been printed and distributed to schools across the U.S. The comic book has also been translated into Spanish, and circulated in schools in Colombia, the Galapagos and other countries in Central and South America.
Sometimes Piggy himself visits schools around the New York City area, and, as always, he knows how to comfort those who need it most.
Piggy also inspired Emko and Gordon to found Darwin Animal Doctors, an organization that provides comprehensive veterinary care to wildlife and domestic animals in the Galapagos Islands. "Having an animal like this, who has had such a hard beginning, is truly inspiring," Emko says. "But there are thousands of animals in need of care, and it's important to remember that they all can be this amazing."
