Argentine penguin colony under threat

Magellanic penguin population at risk from fishing and oil spills.

    Magellanic penguins migrate to the same part of southern Argentina at the same time each year to have their chicks, but their future is under threat from oil and fishing.

    Fishing has forced the penguins to go further away for food and they are at risk from oil that washes up from offshore oil rigs.
    There are no official figures on how many chicks have died this year, but sources have told Al Jazeera that the survival rate could be as low as 15 percent.
