National Geographic Travel

Photo by @FransLanting Happy World Penguin Day! If you ever feel a bit overfed consider this emperor penguin chick with its bulging belly filled to capacity after a huge meal of fish and squid regurgitated by one of its parents standing guard. Emperor penguin parents travel for days across the sea ice surrounding Antarctica to bring food from the open ocean back to their chicks. It’s a race against time, because the young penguins must grow up and fledge before the sea ice melts out from under their feet. Nobody knows what the ultimate effects of global warming will be for these remarkable birds, but while they do what they do best, it’s our responsibility to look ahead to safeguard a future for them. Follow me @FransLanting and @ChristineEckstrom to see more of these heroic birds. If you would like to own a signed print of another emperor penguin image I made, check the @natgeocreative link in my Instagram profile—the prints are only $100 and the sale ends April 28.
