Caption: Faeces of the Antarctic Fur Seal, in the South Orkney Islands. It is coloured pink from the seals diet of Antarctic Krill. Krill a crustacean is the basis of the whole Antarctic food chain, the main food source for seals, penguins and whales. The krill feeds on algae that grows under the sea ice, As the sea ice retreats, the algae decline, which has lead to a greater than 50% decline in Krill numbers. The Antarctic Peninsular is one of the fastest warming places on the planet.
