Emperor penguins at risk of extinction in Antarctica
London. Emperor penguin species are at risk of extinction due to climate change in Antarctica. Thousands of emperor penguin babies died last year in four areas of Antarctica, according to a study. It was reported in the study that in 2022, the level of snow was recorded to be very low. This directly affected the breeding season of penguins. According to a study published in the journal Communications Earth and Environment, 90 percent of emperor penguins are at risk of extinction by the end of this century. Due to global warming, seasonal sea ice is decreasing on the continent of Antarctica, which is very important for the survival of penguins. It was told in the study that due to global warming and climate change, the ice of Antarctica melted and the level of sea water increased. Due to this, about 10 thousand penguin children lost their lives.
