The Adélie Penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) is a penguin that are all black except for a white chest and belly, and a white ring around their eyes. WEST ANTARCTICA IS WARMING ALMOST TWICE AS FAST AS PREVIOUSLY BELIEVED..... We cant “remain of ice” in front of the sadness of that Adelie penguin standing on what it seems the last piece of ice! I imagine easily that looking around at the many stones, he is wondering what would be soon its future? What will be Antarctica in few decades? Just a huge desert without life…. Is that what we are doing ???
Adelie penguins inhabit rocky coasts, ice floes, and islands along the coastline of Antarctica. They forage in the waters surrounding Antarctica. Their distribution is circumpolar.
