Antarctica penguin population declining

ANTARCTICA -- The U.S. Antarctic research base at Palmer Station has been clinging to a rocky shore since the 1960s.

There because the Adelie species of penguin has nested nearby, numbering in the tens of thousands.

They are the penguins that were the model for the movie “Happy Feet.” They’re apparently not so happy any more.

They call Shawn Farry the Bird Man here, but lately he’s had a lot fewer birds to count.

2. They are going extinct. And as with the polar bears, global warming is causing harm to penguins.

4. Yeah sure.

You must be using that liberal dictionary again. The polar population has INCREASED 500% in recent decades. More fake news from fake scientists.

6. You might want to get a hold of these guys and tell them they are wrong

https://polarbearscience.com/2016/08/04/polar-bears-off-the-ice-in-w-hudson-bay-are-well-fed-and-in-great-shape-this-year/

“This has without a doubt been Churchill Wild’s most spectacular start to the summer polar bear watching season. …Bear numbers are up spectacularly this year and all are looking very fat and healthy, perhaps much to the chagrin of climate change “experts.” Our best day for the seductive white carnivores over the past week featured 21 polar bears sighted between the Lodge and our whale swim spot!

The ice pack, which was still visible a week ago , has finally dissipated and pushed a large number of bears on to our coastline here at Seal River, with the end result being many very happy cameras!”


and these guys:
