The Adelie Penguins are endangered

Easy Blog Photo
We read an article with Mr. M today about an iceberg blocking penguins from open water and getting food. The Adelie penguins are endangered. The Penguins have to walk 120 km to open water. A lot of penguins have died over the journey. An iceberg that is as big as Rome blocked the place where they would dive in to get food. This made me change my thinking again to natural habitat. I'm on the natural habitat side and on the captivity side. I'm on the natural habitat side because they need food and the cold. I'm on the captivity side because their natural habitat is killing them and Mr. or Mrs. Popper could run to the store for food. So I'm on both sides. It's hard to decide. My class finished Mr. Popper's Penguins a few weeks ago. It was a really good book it was the best book ever. At the end, Mr. Popper has to made a big choice.  He might give the Penguins to Mr. Klein or give them to Admiral Drake. Mr. Klein who was going to take the Penguins to Hollywood and Admiral Drake will take them to the North Pole. Mr.Popper made the decision he was going to the North Pole and Mr. Popper decided to go with him. There are many hard choices.

Trapped Adelie Penguins

My class is done with reading Mr. Popper's Penguins and it was really good. With Mr. M, we read an article and watched a video about Adelie penguin's natural habitat being effected by an iceberg. These penguins are dying. So that made me change my thinking to that they should live in captivity because there could be people who could go and help them and save them. If penguins lived in captivity, a person could just go to the store and get food for them like shrimp or fish instead of those penguins waddling over 120 km to get food so I just think that people could go to the store and get food for them. So that is my idea! Now I'm going on to my talking about the end off the story about Mr. Poppers Penguins they went to take the Penguins to Antartica. And that's All!!!!!!!!

The Big Iceberg

Oh no!  Adelie penguins are almost are extinct. There were 150,000 now there are 10,000, isn't that horrible? The are having a hard time getting to their food. Adelie penguins are the smallest penguins in the world and they have to travel 70 miles to get food. There was a really big iceberg. The iceberg was as big as Rome. Rome is in Italy and it is big! That is really big. I'm really sad that they are almost extinct.

The Adelie Penguins Are Endangered

The Adelie penguins are endangered. The penguins have to walk 120km just to get food. A lot of the penguins have died on the long journey. An iceberg has hit their natural habitat and it has made it impossible for them to get into the water and to get food. 150,000 penguins have died over the journey to be exact. At the end of the book I put my thinking closer to natural habitat. But now that I have seen and heard about this iceberg effecting the penguins, I don't think they should be in their natural habitat and they should be in a zoo. This book was so good and it was very fun and funny to read. I think Mrs. Popper, Mr. Popper, Janie and Bill are all really silly. I loved this book. The hard part is thinking about the terrible things happening in their natural habitat.

Iceberg Shifts

We finally finished reading Mr. Poppers Penguins. Mr. Popper brought the penguins back to their natural habitat. I think It was the good thing to do. Because now the Penguins are free. But it can be dangerous for Penguins to be free. A giant iceberg shifted in 2010 and now Penguins have to travel 120 km just to get some food! This crisis turned a penguin colony from 160,000 penguins to 10,000 penguins! The species of penguins who suffered this is the Adelie penguins. I hope the number of penguins goes up soon and they start to be able to get food easier. I also hope that somebody helps the penguins very soon because penguins are one of my favorite animals. There's lots of people who's favorite animal is the penguin too. I think we can save the Adelie Penguins if lots of people help the Adelie penguins get their food and help them through this terrible time.

Making A Tough Decision

In 2015 there was in announcement that 150,000 Adelie penguins had died after a super sized iceberg the size of Rome blocked the water source to the Penguins. The Penguins in Mr. Popper's Penguins are the Adelie Penguins. In my last post I switched from captivity to natural habitat on our Tug of War because of the climate in jail was not right for the penguins. But now I'm having a tug toward captivity. The reason why I think that I should change back to captivity is because of what happened to all the penguins in their natural habitat, so this is really confusing me because I've already changed my thinking twice. I think that I should change it back because of what happened in real life. That's why I think I should change it.

Adelie Almost Extinct

Adelie Almost Extinct!  At the end of the book, my thinking was more toward captivity because they were pretty happy with Mr. Popper. We read an article about an iceberg the size of Rome that recently shifted and blocked a penguin colony from open water. It made it hard for the penguins to find food. It also makes it hard for the penguins to find food for their babies. Now, they them travel 120 km.! 140,000 penguins have died! After reading this article, my thinking did not change because they would have easier access to food. I hope you liked my blog!
