Mass Antarctic Penguin Die-Off

Posted by on Sunday, October 22, 2017

Researchers are concerned after a large amount of penguin's have died.

An unusual amount of sea ice forced the parents of the penguin's to go further in search of food for their children.

When the parents returned, only two out of thousands of chicks had survived.

The penguin's diet consists mainly of fish, crustaceans and cephalopods, although its composition varies from population to population.

Fish are usually the most important food source.
