Yes. As the temperature rises, the ice melts, and penguins’ physical habitat is endangered as well as some of their major food sources. (Penguin eat krill, which need polar ice to reproduce.
Yes. King penguins, for example, are affected in a variety of indirect ways by habitat effects like warming of the oceans, e.g. a warming of the sea surface limits the breeding success in the penguins. In the same study, warmer oceans lead to reduced availability of food for the penguins, and thus a reduction in penguin survival. Similar results have been discovered for Adélie penguins as well.
