Engineers, what is wrong here?
There are penguins all over the world, not just in Antarctica. The red dots indicate where penguins live. There are penguins all over the southern hemisphere. Even in South Africa…
Boulders Beach is on the coast of South Africa. Here, the Boulders Beach penguins live. As the climate across the globe changes, these penguins are getting hot. To keep from overheating, they cool off in the water. But this survival technique has not worked in their favor…
Boulders Beach Penguins The sea gulls are stealing their eggs! So the park rangers have built the penguins little houses to protect their eggs AND to help keep them cooler. This is helping them survive!
Climate change is causing penguins in Antarctica to become endangered by eliminating available habitats
How bad is climate change? Are we to blame?
But how can we help? For starters, we can conserve energy so we don’t use as many fossil fuels in power plants! What can we do at home to help the penguins?
How can we conserve energy at home? What do you think the arrows represent? Where is the heat going? What time of year do you think this is?
What about in the summer? Now where is the heat going? In the summer, it’s HOT! Heat transfers into our houses!
We need to slow down heat transfer. Keep heat out in the summer… Keep heat inside in the winter… Use less energy to heat and cool our homes. In other words, we need to stop the from happening!
