南極洲企鵝 antarctic penguins

blog_illl161-13

全球暖化曾帶來無冰的陸地,讓巴布亞企鵝、阿德利企鵝及南極企鵝這三種南極洲企鵝更方便繁殖。可惜現在情況惡化,企鵝的主要食糧磷蝦短缺,這些於冰塊底部藻類生長的磷蝦隨著冰塊消失。當中只有巴布亞企鵝因食物種類較廣,才受較少影響。

warmer antarctic climate has make it easier for the gentoo, adelie and chinstrap penguins to breed and hunt for food, as they prefer less icy land and water. but now that the situation has gone worse, the penguins have lost their food supply. their main food sources is krill that live around the algae at the bottom of sea ice. with lack of sea ice these krill are gone as well. only gent penguins are less affected as they feed on a more diverse type of prey.
