Computer models indicate that Emperor penguin migration strategies will not be able to overcome the melting of sea ice over the next 80 years.
Emperor penguins managed to survive the last Ice Age, a new genetic study says, and now scientists are taking a closer look as to how these animals prevailed during a period of extreme climate change.
As part of a unique study, researchers are using a cute chick rover to spy on notoriously shy Emperor penguins in Antarctica, according to recent research.
Contrary to what other recent reports have said, a new study by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) says that emperor penguins are in danger of dramatic declines by the end of the century, and marching towards extinction due to climate change.
Scientists have been growing increasingly concerned about penguins, worried that melting ice sheets and warming temperatures were leaving the flightless birds with no place to go. However, according to a recent study, penguins may actually be more willing to adapt to a changing environment than previously thought.
Three explorers have confirmed the presence of a 9,000-colony of emperor penguins in east Antarctica, reports LiveScience.
