There are penguins all over the world, not just in Antarctica. The red dots indicate where penguins live. There are penguins all over the southern hemisphere. Even in South Africa…
Boulders Beach is on the coast of South Africa. Here, the Boulders Beach penguins live. As the climate across the globe changes, these penguins are getting hot. To keep from overheating, they cool off in the water. But this survival technique has not worked in their favor…
Boulders Beach Penguins So the park rangers have built the penguins little houses to protect their eggs AND to help keep them cooler. The sea gulls are stealing their eggs! This is helping them survive!
Climate change is causing penguins in Antarctica to become endangered by eliminating available habitats
But how can we help? What can we do at home to help the penguins? For starters, we can conserve energy so we don’t use as many fossil fuels in power plants!
How can we conserve energy at home? What do you think the arrows represent? Convection Where is the heat going? Radiation What time of year do you think this is? Conduction
What about in the summer? Convection In the summer, it’s HOT! Heat transfers into our houses! Radiation Now where is the heat going? Conduction
We need to slow down heat transfer. Keep heat out in the summer… Keep heat inside in the winter… Use less energy to heat and cool our homes. In other words, we need to stop the from happening! Radiation Conduction Convection
Conserving energy is the key to help… Save the Penguins
