An Adélie exit

Years ago, it was common to find colonies of Adélie penguins congregating on the ice in Antarctica.  Things are different today.

Thirty-five years ago, Antarctica was filled with the roar of thousands and thousands of Adélie penguins, but today things are eerily quiet. Dr. Bill Fraser, who has watched over and studied the Adélie penguins in Antarctica for decades, views their decline as a personal loss. You can listen to the audio at this post, and watch the visuals by clicking here.

This piece is 1 of 4 audio slideshows describing how the life and ice of Antarctica are dealing with climate change. Find the others here.
