Emperor Penguins which are a species of penguins native to Antarctica rely on ice to live. Because global warming is melting all of the ice, these penguins are vulnerable because of these environmental problems!
WHO Institution has found that if we don’t stop global warming, these beautiful penguins could be extinct by the end of this century! There will be a 86% decline in the population of emperor penguins by the year 2100!
Breeding, Feeding, and many other important things in a penguin’s life depend on the sea ice. Emperor Penguins only build their colonies on sea ice. Ice is important for them to raise their chicks. Now as the temperatures in Antarctica are slowly rising, this is slowly melting the ice damaging the penguin’s ability to give birth and raise their chicks.
Jenouvrier and her group led the concentrate by joining two existing PC models. The initial, a worldwide environment model made by the Public Community for Barometrical Exploration (NCAR), offered projections of where and when ocean ice would frame under various environmental situations. The second, a model of the penguin populace itself, determined how states could respond to changes in that ice environment.
Let’s stop climate change and act now to save our precious animals! Their lives depend on us!
