Life isn't easy for a penguin chick.
There's a lot to worry about: predators, having enough food, and now the changing climate.
Researchers spent nearly thirty years tracking chicks at Punta Tombo, the world's largest colony of Magellanic penguins.
研究人员们花了将近30年的时间追踪Punta Tombo群岛上生活的这群小家伙，这里是世界上最大的麦哲伦企鹅栖息地 。
They found that increased rainfall and extreme heat due to climate change are killing chicks.
The study is in the journal PLoS ONE.
Down-covered chicks are too big to receive parental protection from the elements, but are not old enough to have grown protective waterproof feathers.
So they get soaked to the skin during rainstorms and die of hypothermia.
Their downy feathers do them a disservice during heat waves too, since they can't go for a swim to cool off until their waterproof feathers grow in.
Chicks not getting enough food are even more susceptible to the elements, as they lack the fuel to maintain their body temperature.
Storms during breeding season are already on the rise, and are expected to keep increasing.
So climate change will likely pose a challenge not only in Magellanic penguins, but other seabirds as well.
It'll be sink or swim.
1.due to 由于；因为
Much of the shift is due to economic growth.
Police say it's due to better policing.
2.climate change 气候变化
Climate change will cause mass migration.
Will climate change make fire more likely?
3.enough to 足以
It tells you enough to get started right away.
Almost all women can produce enough to feed a child.
4.die of 死于
With its shell damaged, the roach will soon die of dehydration.
Be careful about reading health books. You may die of a misprint.
