Gentoo Penguin about to feed its Chick.

(Antarctic Peninsula)

Melting sea ice and overfishing have triggered a dangerously rapid decline in penguin populations on the Antarctic peninsula – a direct result of global warming, warns a new report from the WWF.

The gentoo, chinstrap and adélie – along with the emperor, the largest penguin species in the world – are now struggling to survive as melting sea ice reduces vital food sources, such as krill.

Gentoos are now listed as nearly endangered on the IUCN Red List.
