Under 2°C global warming and the projected decrease in sea ice thickness and increase in open water area, Emperor penguins will find it increasingly difficult to find new nesting areas. In the face of a warming climate, the Adélie penguins may find refuge in the Ross and Amundsen Seas. On one hand, the XR lacks the high-resolution screen and dual-lens camera on the XS.
