150,000 Penguins Presumed Dead May Still be Alive


There may be hope yet for the 150,000 missing Adélie penguins of East Antarctica.

After a massive iceberg collided with Commonwealth Bay and forced the penguins further away from their food source, it had been reported that huge numbers of these flightless birds died as a result.

But, some experts suggest an explanation that is much less macabre. 

With no evidence so far of 150,000 frozen penguin carcasses, researchers say the colony may simply have marched to another location in search of food.

In 2010, a ‘giant iceberg,’ called B09B collided with Commonwealth Bay, a location in East Antarctica that housed a colony of breeding Adélie penguins at Cape Denison.

Before this, Commonwealth Bay was rarely covered with sea ice, researchers from the University of New South Wales explain in a paper published to the journal Antarctic Science.

This onslaught of ice has been linked to a decline in the Cape Denison penguins, who were subsequently cut off from access to the sea by more than 37 miles of ice.

    Wait, so media-owned keyboard slaves decided to declare 150,000 penguins dead based on nothing but an assumption, likely to tout the global warming dogma because "all the ice is melting!", but in reality they simply took a detour? lol

    Journalism for the win. It's good that there's a significant chance those penguins are all still alive and trundling along.
