Global warming is absolutely threatening the life of chinstrap penguins. Rising temperatures and a loss of sea ice are leading factors in the reduction of the penguins’ nesting grounds, which they need to breed. Climate change has also led to a decrease in the availability of krill, tiny crustaceans that the penguins rely on for nourishment. In fact, scientists believe that the population of krill and other fish has declined by as much as 80% since the 1970s. Surely, this is due to global warming. Some colonies of chinstrap penguins have decreased by two thirds of the normal size due to lack of food. As temperatures rise and global warming remains a threat, the chinstrap penguin population will continue to fall.
