Raising awareness for Chinstrap Penguins through his art

“Earlier on this year, a team of scientists braved the freezing conditions of the Antarctic to count Chinstrap penguins – Chinstrap penguins are disappearing fast.

The results show that penguin numbers have dropped by around two-thirds since they were last counted in the 1970’s.

Rising temperatures, loss of food from industrial fishing and disappearing sea ice are all to blame.”

Chinstrap penguin numbers increased in the mid-20th century, attributed by some to the rebound of krill from centuries of seal and whale hunting. Today, some populations are declining, though not precipitously. Restrictions are in place to keep tourists from approaching breeding birds too closely. (Source : National Geographic)
