    Climate change will force King Penguins to move after food or face heavy losses

    For most colonies, the length of the summer trips by parents to get food will soon become so long that their offspring could starve while waiting

    Global warming is on track to wipe out 70% of the world's King penguins by century's end, putting the regal birds on a path towards extinction, researchers warned on Monday. As climate change drives away the fish and squid upon which the flightless creatures depend, the penguins must swim further afield to find sustenance for their hungry hatchlings on land.
