Bad News: Magellan penguins found starved to death in Brazil

[Magellan penguin]

Penguins are my favourite animals. They're beautiful, smart, brave and not goofy like people usually think. It's very sad for me reading a news like this one:

Hundreds of dead Magellan penguins have been washing ashore in Brazil during the past 10 days, baffling biologists as they try to figure out what's going on. About 500 of the birds have turned up on three separate beaches in the state of São Paulo, and autopsies revealed their stomachs are completely empty, suggesting they starved to death. Migrating from Argentina, Chile and the Falkland Islands, the penguins were on a quest for food in warmer waters, and scientists are now investigating why they might not have found any.

You can find further information here and here.
