According to a recent study, satellite imaging has revealed that there are nearly 20% more emperor penguin colonies in Antarctica than previously thought. Scientists discovered 11 new colonies, meaning there are now 61 colonies across the continent overall. The scientists note "Climate change is a real threat to the species as the loss of sea ice will devastate their habitats. According to the report, the new colonies "are situated at the margins of the emperors' breeding range," which makes them vulnerable as the global climate warms."
