Freezing cold, 100 km per hour winds, -40C temperatures covered in snow and ice. What kind of animal would not only survive in, but thrive in that kind of environment. Penguins are one of the most known animal in the antarctic. There unique swimming abilities and survival skills are impeccable for there size. Some may be small and some may be large but they all share similar traits with each other.
El Niño’s have been occurring for about 10,000 years since the last Ice Age. When an El Niño occurs it decreases the rise of cold water off the coast of the Americas. “When this happens the fish either die or migrate into areas that they will find more to eat” (wildlife.ca.gov). When this happens in the in the Pacific close to the Ecuador the Galapagos fur seals struggle to find food. When the fish are gone the wildlife that depend on them for food will die also.

The 43 sites for sampling contained different forage availability and throughout time, nine different climate changes that aligned with summer heat and winter snowpack temperatures (Chalfoun. Doak, and Yandow). The experimenters hypothesized that summer heat will limit the Pika abundance due to head stress and limited forage and the winter snowpack would also decrease the Pika abundance in areas with extreme cold temperatures and heavy snowfall (Chalfoun. Doak, and Yandow). They also hypothesized that the Pika abundance would be greatest in climates that support healthy plant growth and forage availability (Chalfoun.

They are emerging 38 days earlier from hibernation than they did 28 years ago but now when they emerge the snow is far too deep for them to forage for herbs successfully (Inouye et al. 2000). Marmots have one very short breeding season a year. It occurs as soon as the females emerge from hibernation and almost 80 per cent of the variation in rate of pregnancy and litter size today is explained by the lack of snow melted and therefore lack of food available (Van Vuren & Armitage 1991).Photoperiodic cueing is more common among long-lived mammals while it is much less common in shorter lived mammals. This information suggests that as our climate changes the smaller mammals may adapt easily but the longer-lived mammals whose reproduction is regulated by photoperiod may not adapt as well.
