"Not exclusively do the Danger Islands hold the biggest populace of Adélie penguins on the Antarctic Peninsula, they likewise seem to have not endured the populace decreases found along the western side of Antarctic Peninsula that are related with late environmental change", says Polito.
The scientists used an algorithm to search images from the American Landsat spacecraft for sites of possible penguin activity.
Ecologists had grown concerned in recent years as they counted fewer and fewer Adélie penguins, once the most abundant species in Antarctica. The lack of humans and effects from climate change may contribute to the super colony's ability to thrive on the Danger Islands.
Now that scientists know where the Adélie Penguins are, they can also work to protect them.
The scientists who studied Adélie penguins wrote that the population was lowering on the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula. "You can then stitch them together into a huge collage that shows the entire landmass in 2D and 3D", Hanumant Singh, professor of mechanical and industrial engineering at Northeastern University, said in a statement. "We all knew there would be a lot penguins there, but I think none of us knew there would be this many".
The team now want to get a better understanding of exactly what's causing the difference between the two populations, as well as set up policies to keep the Danger Islands protected. Polito said the publication of their study comes at just the right time to assist in that effort, as an global body that oversees Antarctica's wildlife resources is expected to review new refuge proposals in October.
