One giant leap for penguins

These Adélie penguins are jumping for joy because it's World Penguin Day. Or maybe they're just looking for a snack as they dive off this iceberg. Adélies live on Antarctica and nearby islands all year long, but in the fall and winter they spend most of their time near the coast. They can dive as deep as 575 feet or travel as much as 185 miles to find krill, fish, and squid.

The smallest penguin in the Antarctic, Adélies are one of only two penguin species (the other is the Emperor penguin) that live exclusively on the Antarctic continent. Huge colonies of Adélies were once spread throughout the Antarctic Peninsula and the coastline of the continent, but as climate change took hold, populations declined in some areas. Fortunately, a robust colony of some 1.5 million Adelie penguins was found on the Antarctic Peninsula's Danger Islands.

企鹅的一次大跃进

这些广告é因为今天是世界企鹅日,所以企鹅们高兴得跳起来。或者他们只是在从冰上跳下去的时候找点吃的。广告é它们终年生活在南极洲和附近的屿上,但在天和冬天,它们大部分时间都在海岸附近。它们可以潜到575英尺深或185英里深的地方寻找磷虾、鱼和鱿鱼。

南极最小的企鹅,公元é谎言是只生活在南极大陆的两种企鹅物种之一(另一种是帝企鹅)。大量的广告é谎言一度蔓延到整个南极半岛和该大陆的海岸线,但随着气候变化,一些地区的人口减少。幸运的是,在南极半岛的危险岛上发现了一个由大约150万只阿德利企鹅组成的健壮的群体。
