Plight of Falklandsí starving penguins

When West Country troops were sent to the Falklands 20 years ago they were told they were liberating an island of 2,000 people and 6 million penguins. Thanks to their sacrifice the Falklands have developed in a prosperous modern society, but the penguin population is in crisis, its numbers having dwindled to less than one million.

Dr Mike Bingham, of Environmental Research Unit, who has been working with penguins in the Falklands since 1993, explained: "The penguins have died from starvation."
