Emperor penguin in danger!

Not much to add here: since 2016 the penguins in Halley Bay are having a hard time breeding. Mostly due to their habitat becoming unwelcoming – thanks to the climate change.

Xinhua news agency reports that in 2016 and 2017, low sea ice extent and early breakout of sea ice in spring resulted in complete breeding failure.

It has been estimated that, should the trend continues, we will see the emperor penguin disappearing by 2100.
