The penguins died EN masse due to climate change.
Scientists from China found on the long Peninsula (coast of East Antarctica) hundreds of mummies penguins.
First, experts from the University of science and technology found abandoned colonies of Adelie penguins (one of the most common types), and then found the remains of birds who died about 750 years ago.
Scientists believe that the penguins died EN masse due to climate change: a large number of summer precipitation and the melting of snow could lead to hypothermia (hypothermia) animals.
According to zoologists, today over the penguins also faced the threat of extinction, as climate conditions change dramatically due to global warming.
