    US promoting Endangered Species Act for Emperor penguin colonies

    I first saw an emperor penguin when I visited Pointe Geologie, Antarctica, during my Ph.D. studies

    By Stephanie Jenouvrier (*) Emperor penguins thrive on Antarctica’s coastlines in icy conditions any human would find extreme. Yet, like Goldilocks, they have a narrow comfort zone: If there’s too much sea ice, trips to bring food from the ocean become long and arduous, and their chicks may starve. With too little sea ice, the chicks are at risk of drowning.
