ANTARCTICA, CUVERVILLE ISLAND : A Gentoo penguin and its chick in
Cuverville Island, in the western Antarctic peninsula on March 04, 2016.
Waddling over the rocks, legions of penguins hurl themselves into the
icy waters of Antarctica, foraging to feed their young. Like seals and
whales, they eat krill, an inch-long shrimp-like crustacean that forms
the basis of the Southern Ocean food chain. But penguin-watchers say the
krill are getting scarcer in the western Antarctic peninsula, under
threat from climate change and fishing. AFP PHOTO/EITAN ABRAMOVICH
