Antarctic emperor penguins have been able to shift their breeding grounds above ice cliffs as high as 30 meters (100 feet), suggesting they’re more resilient to a warming climate than previously thought, according to a study.

The finding is significant because it shows the emperor penguin is capable of adapting from year-to-year to cope with changing conditions, according to the statement. That means it may be more resilient against the effects of global warming.

Adaptation (to Global Warming) plus isolation will hopefully lead to new species rather than extinction in some cases.
