These Antarctic birds mostly live on tiny crustaceans called krill.
Krill live on the undersides of ice sheets, where they find refuge and algae as food.
But as Antarctic sea ice retreats, krill populations are falling—meaning that the penguins have to migrate farther to find food.
Spending a lot more energy to find food makes penguins less successful at breeding and raising young, the scientists said. Source
