Mass die-off of Magellanic penguins due to heatwave in 2019

Climate change is killing many species in the wild. This is the case of these more than 350 penguins, which have now been found to have disappeared as a result of a heat wave in 2019. This is why the ‘ex situ’ scientific work carried out in zoological institutions is so valuable, because it generates very significant data for the conservation of species that are key in cases of rescues due to natural catastrophes or for the design of conservation plans in the wild.
