Antartican Penguin Population Meets With Disaster
Penguin Disaster In Antartica.
An Antartican Penguin colony has met with disaster this past season. Almost all of their offspring this season aside from two died. Terre Adélie is home to a population f 18,000 penguins. This year tragedy struck when the offspring of these pairs of penguins starved to death.
The cause of starvation was determined to be unusual sea ice. The sea ice became an issue for the penguins as it extended their search for food. Usually, the penguins do not have to travel as far in order to forage for food. Penguins survive on a krill diet a shrimp-like creature.
Penguins usually bring to mind happy images such as those in previous movies like Madagascar and Happy Feet. In comparison, Rod Downie at World Wildlife Fund said: “It’s more like ‘Tarantino does Happy Feet’, with dead penguin chicks strewn across a beach in Adélie Land.”
This is sad news for the penguins but not the end by any means. They have had similar tragedies in past years. A couple years back they had an ice rain that froze all of the offspring that season.
