Researchers believe that New Zealand's mainland Yellow-eyed penguins face extinction

Scientists have modelled factors driving mainland Yellow-eyed penguin population decline and are calling for action to reduce regional threats. According to the researchers’ prediction models, breeding success of the penguins will continue to decline to extinction by 2060 largely due to rising ocean temperatures.
