Featured Photo: “Chinstrap penguin, Weddell Sea” by SummitVoice1 on Flickr

2012 May 15

Congratulations to Flickr participant Bob Berwyn for his featured photo from State of the Environment!

penguin on ice floe Weddell Sea by SummitVoice1 on Flickr

This May 5, 2011 photo tells a larger┬ástory about our environment today. From the photographer: “This lone chinstrap penguin on an ice floe in the Weddell Sea may be symbolic of the fate of the species. New studies show their populations have dropped by 50 percent in the last three decades, and the research links that decline to rapidly climbing temps along the West Antarctic Peninsula in sort of a ‘smoking gun’ for climate change.”
