My research paper is about penguins. I chose penguins for my research because they have become endangered. Currently our climate has changed, and the biggest reason is global warming. It pushes penguins to die. Now, a lot of pollution makes global warming and global warming makes the temperatures get warm. And global warming makes the sea temperatures become high until some creatures cannot live in there, and makes the sea ice melt. Therefore, penguins cannot live in their ecosystem anymore. They have to find other land to live on or go to extinction. A century ago, a lot of penguins lived and waddled or swam to some islands. And they could live very well. In the past there was a large number of these animals in our world. And penguins had a lot of different colonies in our world; some were African penguins, Gentoo penguins or Antarctic penguins. Now our society has a lot of developed technology and scientific stuff to use, so we make a lot of pollution in our world. It causes global warming to affect penguins’ life, so penguins become less and less in our world. And our experts have found this problem, so now our government has begun to protect penguins. They are doing some things like cutting greenhouse gases to protect penguins, because they want penguins to survive in our world.
In my paper, I will write that because I like penguins, penguins are becoming extinct, and we make a lot of pollution that causes global warming, to save penguins from the edge of extinction we have to protect penguins. First, we can find a new home for penguins. Next, we should ban some artificial activity which will push penguins to die. Finally, we have to find some solution to prevent and reduce global warming, to stop global warming from pushing penguins to die. Global warming causes penguins to become extinct and we make a lot of pollution, which causes global warming. We must do it.
I have found a variety of articles that give penguins’ history and penguins’ life ecosystems and explain why and how penguins are becoming extinct. Also I found some articles that talk about how to save penguins. I think I still need to find more resource to help me to make a good research paper.
