Baby Penguins Found Dead in Brazil

This is a kind of sad news story about penguins washing ashore dead in Brazil The hundreds of penguins are washing ashore on Rio de Janiero's shores from Antarctica and the Patagonia region. It is not entirely abnormal for the penguins to end up here, but it is far more than usual and more are dead. A few of the reasons include overfishing causing them to venture further north and getting stuck in the strong ocean current and pollution.
