The emperor penguin is the largest penguin in the world and the only one that breeds in the harsh winter of Antarctica. Diving up to 1,750 feet below the sea ice and for as long as 20 minutes, emperor penguins can travel as far as 600 miles in search of food. The emperor penguin is considered near threatened with extinction and is particularly vulnerable to ocean pollution and ecosystem changes caused by climate change.
