  1. Penguin Numbers Could Halve Within 100 Years

    Scientists believe climate change could kill off half of the world’s emperor penguin population within a century. Antarctica’s 45 known penguin colonies trek up to 80 miles over the ice to breed and catch krill and fish.

Such a status won’t refreeze their too-slippery slopes, but it’s hoped that it will lead to other efforts to help the at-risk birds.
