Global Warming Affecting King Penguins

The headline of this article on King Penguins caught my attention not just because I have been very interested in the endangered status of all penguin species since I wrote my college research paper on endangered penguins two years ago, but also because you do not often see stuff on King penguins. It is far more common to see stuff on Antarctic species like the Emperor and Adelie penguins. This article talks about how global warming is affecting King Penguin colonies. The threat is related to the decline in food supply due to warming oceans.
