The North Atlantic puffins are starving to death from a lack of suitable food to feed their chicks. The ocean has warmed up due to Climate Change, killing zooplankton which is the foundation of the marine eco-system. Some animals are relocating to adapt.

This is so sad. Poor Petey and all the other baby puffins and their parents--all because of climate change and the fish being too large for the baby puffins to swallow.
Law of unintended consequences strikes again.
Will these selfish corporations and Republicans never learn?

Climate change is a serous matter but do our senators or White House do anything; No

What can be done? Stop global warming but people seem so resistant to doing what must be done.

Nothing will be done until just about every living thing in the fauna/flora spectrum is essentially GONE. Then, it will be far far too late. For us and for all the poor birds, fish and everything else that walks, flies, crawls or predates on land or on/in sea. that is the human legacy thanks to people who refuse to see, refuse to hear and refuse to believe that Mamma Nature is fixing to off us BECAUSE we have so abused her. It was coming anyway but WE sped this extinction up by THOUSANDS of years. Thanks a lot human species!

Save the puffins! Something must be done and right quick! Or the only creatures left on this planet will be cockroaches.

Humans are the most despicable creature on this planet and I'm so sorry to belong to the same race that commits so many horrible crimes!

these cams can be a wonderful thing like the bald eagles a few years ago. petey is not. it brought tears to my eyes. animals deserve respect and get none because of us destroying their world as well as our own. the only difference is that we are the top preditor
