Climate change is 'killing Argentina's Magellanic penguin chicks'
Penguin chicks in Argentina are dying as a direct consequence of climate change, according to new research.
Drenching rainstorms and extreme heat are killing the young birds in significant numbers.
The study, conducted over 27 years, looked at climate impacts on the world's biggest colony of Magellanic penguins, which live on the arid Punta Tombo peninsula.
The research has been published in the journal Plos One.
About 200,000 pairs of these penguins make their nests on the peninsula every year.
They reside there, in desert-like conditions, from September until February to hatch their young.
However, the life of a newborn chick is perilous, to say the least.read more
