How do we want penguins to survive without ice if we melt all the ice?! They just... Look bad.

Chinstrap Penguins are awesome but are supposed to be really aggressive. They alwas remind me of WWII soldiers landing on the beaches during D-Day!

Awesome! The babies are adorable. The one with it's wings spread looks like it's giving a speech. :) Well done Nancy.
