Are penguins endangered?

George K asks:

Surely with the longer summers, a sunny March at the moment and the weather changes in general in the UK and around the world, creatures like penguins are endangered. What are your guys thoughts?

Our experts answered

The Emperor penguins should sadly be classed as an endangered species. This is because almost all of their colonies will almost have certainly halved in population by 2100. You’re right though, George. This is due to climate change through sea ice. Lee 0 Votes
