They developed three scenarios, described, the worst of them. It will come true if humanity does nothing to solve the problem of global warming and greenhouse gas emissions remain at the current level. Under the most favorable conditions, 37% of the animals in Antarctica will disappear.

Several species of seabirds are threatened, including Emperor penguins and Adélie penguins. They breed during the Antarctic winter and require solid ice from April to December. If it continues to melt, they won’t be able to reproduce.

Among the main reasons are human pollution, deforestation and growing consumption. The most affected animal population in Latin America – decreased by 94%.
