Penguin family

Penguin family - by Jenny Marples (sold)

Media: coloured pencil on white card
Size: 210mm x 297mm
Prints of this artwork available at: deviantArt

Over the past 50 years, the population of Antarctic emperor penguins has declined by 50 percent. Using the longest series of data available, reseachers have shown that an abnormally long warm spell in the Southern Ocean during the late 1970s contributed to a decline in the population of emperor penguins at Terre Adelie, Antarctica.
