Antarctica’s majestic emperor penguins have a complex life cycle to survive in this harsh environment. However, climate change threatens to disrupt their delicate balance. Dr. Stephanie Jenouvrier of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) studies the ways these creatures are affected, and what this means for the planet.
