One Planet: How is climate change affecting Antarctic penguins?
On this edition of Your Call’s One Planet Series, we’ll celebrate the 49th anniversary of Earth Day by discussing the future of penguins in the Antarctic.
This year’s Earth Day theme is ‘Protect our Species.' Antarctic penguins have existed for 60 million years, but over the last few decades, several penguin populations have rapidly declined due to climate change. What’s being done to save penguins?
