Polar explorers have discovered one of the largest colonies of emperor penguins in Antarctica.
According to National Geographic, the team made a precarious journey in December across the ice shelf, which has been shifting 200 metres each year, to find 9,000 penguins, many of them babies.
Researchers hope the animals will help them understand the full impact of climate change on wildlife in the region.
