Climate Change is Bad for Creatures at the Poles

Their black and white coats are built to withstand the cold, but many of the Calgary Zoo's penguins have been moved inside because of the bone-chilling weather.
Zoo curator Malu Celli said the king penguins have been brought in from their outdoor enclosure on several days during Calgary's latest cold snap.
Zookeepers follow a guideline that if temperatures fall below -25 C, it's safer to keep the penguins indoors, said Celli. Temperatures have averaged -28 C in recent days, she said, and with the wind chill, it can feel more like -40 C.
