On board the Antarctic expedition that reveals dramatic penguin decline
The number of chinstrap penguins in some colonies in Western Antarctica has fallen by as much as 77% since they were last surveyed in the 1970s, say scientists studying the impact of climate change on the remote region.

Steve Forrest, a scientist, counts the number of chinstrap penguins in a colony standing on Anvers Island, Antarctica. "The declines that we've seen are definitely dramatic," said Forrest, a conservation biologist who joined a team of scientists from the two U.S. universities of Stony Brook and Northeastern on an Antarctic expedition that has just ended. "Something is happening to the fundamental building blocks of the food chain here. We've got less food abundance that's driving these populations down lower and lower over time and the question is, is that going to continue?"

The scientists, traveling on two Greenpeace ships, the Esperanza and the Arctic Sunrise, conducted their expedition to Western Antarctica from Jan. 5 to Feb. 8, and used manual and drone surveying techniques to assess the scale of the damage.

A colony of chinstrap penguins walk along a mountain on Two Hummock Island, Antarctica. The number of chinstraps at one important habitat in the region, Elephant Island, has plummeted by around 60% since the last survey in 1971, to fewer than 53,000 breeding pairs today, the expedition found.

A seal swims amongst broken pieces of ice near Quentin Point, Anvers Island, Antarctica. "While several factors may have a role to play, all the evidence we have points to climate change as being responsible for the changes we are seeing," said Heather Lynch, associate professor of ecology and evolution at Stony Brook University.

The World Meteorological Organization said last week that a research base in Antarctica had recorded the hottest temperature ever for the continent - 64.94 degrees Fahrenheit - as global warming causes an increase in melting of the ice sheets around the south pole.

Michael Wethington, a scientist, collects rubbish on Snow Island, Antarctica. A pungent smell of penguin excrement informs the scientists that they are nearing a colony even before they can hear the birds' loud, harsh call. The birds have not learned to fear humans, so they mostly ignore their visitors.

The moon shines over icebergs near Fournier Bay, Antarctica. Greenpeace is calling on the United Nations to commit to protect 30% of the world's oceans by 2030, a target called for by scientists and a growing number of governments as the minimum needed to halt the damage being done by harmful human activity. The U.N. will meet from March 23 to April 3 to try to agree a global ocean treaty, which could then take years to ratify.

"I think we stand to lose much of what we love... like the penguins from Elephant Island, but I think in the end it's what kind of world do we want to live in?" Frida Bengtsson, Greenpeace Oceans campaigner, told Reuters off Anvers Island. "Our oceans are incredibly important to regulate our global climate."
