Knowing their location provides a baseline for monitoring their response to environmental change, according to a new study publish

journal Global Ecology and Biogeography.In t▓he new study, scientists from British A


ntarctic Survey (BAS)describe how▓ they used satellite images to survey the sea-ice around 90 perce▓nt of Antarctica's coast to search for emperor penguin colonies. The survey identified a total of 38. Ten of those were new. Of the previously known co▓lonies six had re-located and six were not found.Becau▓se emperor penguins breed on sea-ice during the Antarctic winter little is known about their colonies. Reddish brown patches of guano on the ice,▓ vis

ible in satellite images, provide a reliable indication of their location.BAS mapping expert Peter Fretwell explains "We can't see actual penguins on the satellite maps because the resolution isn't good enough. But during the breedi▓ng season the birds stay at a colony for eight months. The ice gets pretty dirty and it's the guano stains that we▓ can see."Emperor penguins spend a large part of their lives at sea. During the Antarctic winter when temper
