Happy Penguin Awareness Day.
When we first decided to try and breed Antarctic penguins in captivity experts said it would never work and that no one would be interested in flightless sea birds. Penguin mania has since spread across the globe. These iconic birds thrive in the remote cold of Antarctica, but small changes to their fragile world, baring the brunt of climate change, could be disastrous.

#Reposting @midgeraymond -- Meet the Tawaki of New Zealand’s South Island. These beautiful penguins are among the top three rarest and most endangered. Learn more about penguin conservation at @ecosystemsentinels ... and join me & @adventuresbythebook this fall to meet researchers and Magellanic penguins! (Thanks to @jyunker for this awesome photo!)

Today is Penguin Awareness Day. So I’m raising your awareness of why Rockhoppers are called Rockhoppers.

Today is a super exciting day, because it's Penguin Awareness Day - and while that may not sound like a big deal to you, it is to me because it means I have even MORE reason to post cute penguin photos. More importantly, I'm taking advantage of this day by posting the first few of many pictures of baby penguins! This little floof was the first baby penguin I saw on my adventures, made even more special by two things: 1) Mama was over him/her for much of the time and so most people didn't see it, and 2) The sighting was at Port Lockroy, which is the home of the "Antarctic Post Office" and a museum for the United Kingdom Antarctic Heritage Trust #antarctica #wildlife #babies #penguins #gentoopenguin #nesting #portlockroy #7thcontinent #adventure #polarlife #birds #fluffy #cute

Considering these Gentoo and Adelie penguins live in some of the remotest places on earth it's incredible how many people love or are by fascinated by penguins. Learn some facts about these extraordinary sea birds this weekend. Unlike flying birds penguins have very dense bones to aid them in diving. They eat small fish and krill, they are very reliant on limited prey types, any serious reduction in krill numbers due to warming sea temperatures would have a catastrophic effect on their future. Happy penguin awareness day.

#Repost @time - Climate change has become our species’ great destructive equalizer, leaving no part of the planet safe from the harm we do. In March 2017, the sea ice around both poles reached a record low for that time of year. In July, a 1 trillion–ton iceberg, roughly the size of Delaware, calved off of the Larsen C ice shelf in western Antarctica. The damage to the ice is being done not just from above, as the planet’s air warms, but from below, as its oceans do too. In November, @pellegrinpaolo joined @nasa's IceBridge mission for a series of research flights over the west Antarctic peninsula. Scientists onboard surveyed the state of the ice with a suite of instruments including laser altimeters, radars, magneto­meters and gravimeters. No single mission is likely to produce breakthrough results. Rather, IceBridge flights yield cumulative data—sometimes granular­ ­findings that can add to the overall picture of polar melt. Read the full TIME International cover story, and see the full photo essay, on TIME.com. Video by @pellegrinpaolo@magnumphotos for TIME #Antarctica #climatechange
