Over the past decades, there has been considerable research done on which has helped the world become more conscious of the environment we are destroying on a daily basis. A recent study, led by oceanographer Megan Cimino and her team, has been focusing on a particular called Adélie (Pygoscelis adeliae) who have been residing among the Antarctic glaciers for an estimated 45000 years, according to National Geographic.
Over time these penguins have grown to survive and adapt or die to their constantly changing living conditions as a product of millennia of climate change. However, according to Business Insider Australia, researchers predict that 30% of their population could be lost by the year 2060, and as much as 60% of the population will completely vanish by the end of the century.
