  1. Don’t worry, we can send them to the north p….oh, wait….

  2. Really unsure how giving them protected status would help. It’s not like they’re victims of corporate deforestation or any discrete acts that we can proscribe.

  3. Obviously we need a photo shoot of clubbing baby penguins to get any sympathy from the masses oh wait they don’t have any I almost forgot this is humanity after all so maybe package them and send them off as we do with most other endangered wildlife.

    Fuck reality it gets worse every day.

  4. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://news.sky.com/story/half-of-antarcticas-emperor-penguins-could-be-wiped-out-due-to-melting-ice-11831321) reduced by 81%. (I’m a bot)

    > More than half of Antarctica's emperor penguins could be wiped out over the next 80 years due to melting ice, scientists have warned.

    > Researchers from British Antarctic Survey said that rising temperatures and changing wind patterns from global warming will negatively affect the sea ice on which emperor penguins breed.

    > The researchers also recommended that emperor penguins should be listed as a specially protected species, warning that more than half of the birds – at least 300,000 – would die as sea ice melts due to rising temperatures.
