Hundreds of baby penguins swept from the icy shores of Antarctica and Patagonia are washing up dead on Rio de Janeiro's tropical beaches, rescuers and penguin experts said Friday.
More than 400 penguins have been found dead on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro state over the past two months, according to Eduardo Pimenta, superintendent for the state coastal protection and environment agency in the resort city of Cabo Frio.
Rescuers and those who treat penguins are divided over the possible causes.
...no one will care until its too late and we're on a strict diet of whatever laboratories can produce from synthetic materials.

My personal belief is that the baby penguins weren't killed because they couldn't find fish. They could find them, they just had to swim further out of their natural feeding grounds to get them. because of this they were caught up in currents and what not, landing them on some beaches and drowning the vast majority of them. I don't really know for sure... it's just the only possibility that makes sense to me.
