A new study has reported that Emperor penguins will become effectively extinct by 2100.

The bold claim comes from Australian Antarctic Division seabird ecologist Barbara Wienecke. She has recently written a paper that appears in the journal Global Change Biology.

The paper says that if the extinction of the penguins will happen if the Antarctic sea ice continues to decline at current rates due to global warming.

Currently, there are 60 known colonies of emperor penguins in Antarctica and around 236,000 breeding pairs.

The study modelled different greenhouse gas emission scenarios and the impact on Antarctic sea ice.

Emperor penguins rely on sea ice as a breeding platform, and for feeding.
