Scientists say the species could die out in the next 50 years.
Two of the most common species of penguins in Antarctica have experienced severe decline due to climate change.
The world's largest colony of Magellanic penguins descend to South America to feed on the abnormally abundant supply of fish.
Small blue penguins in New Zealand are certainly getting a lot of love. Just recently, an underpass was created especially for them to protect them from vehicles and afford them a bit of privacy from gawking tourists.
Just when the world started to adopt movies with themes on cheating and third parties, now animals seem to follow the same craze as well. The video recently captured by the National Geographic on a fight between two penguins due to unfaithfulness has gone viral on the world wide web.
Experts fear that one of the world's largest penguin colonies may be buried under ash from Mount Curry's eruption.
Adélie penguins may be very adorable, but we can lose these iconic creatures if we don't work towards their conservation. A new study puts a looming deadline: 2099.
Look at the baby penguin learning to walk with its mom!
If you like looking at adorable penguin photos on the Internet, you may finally be doing it for a good cause.
A huge number, 150,000, of Adélie penguins have disappeared from Antarctica's Commonwealth Bay. A recent study tied the occurrence to a giant iceberg that grounded in the area, isolating the penguins and causing them to starve to death. But critics are challenging that claim, suggesting that the birds relocated, instead.
An extinct group of marine reptiles known as plesiosaurs had a very unique body structure. New computer simulations suggest the animals likely used it to move through the water like a penguins.
Little penguins work together to hunt schools of fish to increase their chances of locating prey. However, once a capture is made, it's every penguin for himself.
The Adélie penguins in East Antarctica like rocky areas free of snow and ice, so they happen to increasing in number as a result of the more ice-free coastlines from climate warming. It is still unclear how warming temperatures will affect their krill food sources, though.
Gentoo penguins, an arctic species distributed around the South Pole, have evolved a special method to remian ice-free, say researchers who are now hoping to adapt their findings to airplane wings which frequently need de-icing. "It's a little ironic that a bird that doesn't fly could one day help airplanes fly more safely," said one researcher.
