Global Warming and Atlantic Puffins

Human beings pollute the world every day with Carbon Dioxide and other chemicals which Britain cause our world to warm and our climate to change.  Most scientists agree that this will cause severe effects on wildlife everywhere.

Take a few moments to study Global Warming.  Here are some videos to get you started:

Now try to answer these questions:

1.  If the air and water around Mantinicus Rock both get warmer, how might this effect the Puffins?

2.  If ice that is now on land begins to melt, how might this effect the puffins in Mantinicus Rock?

3.  If the oceans become more acidic, how might this effect the puffins in Mantinicus Rock?

4.  If the kinds of fish that live around Matinicus Rock change because the water is warmer, how might this effect the puffins there?

    the fish that the puffs eat will die

  2. Anonymous says:

    if the ice gets warmer it will melt causing the water to rise and it may cuase the water to be more acidic and that could kill the puffins food source and then the puffins will have a lot to worry about. :(

  3. cm says:

    the island will be under water

  4. CD says:

    This might effect the puffins by making all the fish they eat go to a different place this will kill the puffins

  5. scp says:

  6. sf says:

    1 it will kill the fish that the puffins eat.2 it would get very very warm and they will die.

  7. KV says:

    1 if the air gets warmer the puffins might leave their home
    2 if the ice melts the tempture might to high and puffins wont like it when its to hot
    3 if the water gets too acidic the fish might die and the puffins wont have food
    4 if the fish change they might get bigger or smaller to the puffins

  8. cm says:

    3. The fish will die

  9. LT says:

    1: If the air is warmer, the puffins might leave because it’s too warm.
    2: If the snow melts on Matinicus Rock, the it will melt and will get slightly smaller
    3: The puffins will die because the fish will die because the plankton wiull die because the water is too acidic
    4: If the fish leave, the puffins will leave along with the fish

  10. JM says:

    1. it would affect the puffins because they won’t want to be somewhere were its hot
    2.They might die. And they won’t get there food and no food no puffins.
    3. The puffins will die because the fish will die because the plantation.
    4. The fish will die and no fish no puffins

  11. JO says:

    1.It would effect the puffins because the fish they eat will go to a warmer climate and no more food for the puffins.
    2.It will effect the puffins on the rock by they going into sea and not knowing were they are.
    3.It would be horible because then they would die. Puffins are so cute.
    4.It would effect them beacse the fish would flee and bye bye birdy.

  12. JK says:

    1. This might effect puffins by they might not have a place to live.
    2. This might effect puffins when their island go”s under water.
    3.the puffins might not have any food to eat.
    4.The fish might die and the puffins might die.

  13. TL says:

    If the air and water got warmer around Matinicus Rock it could make the puffins want to move out of their homes because of the climate change, they are not used to the heat. Also the water might be to warm for them to catch food.

  14. cm says:

    4.The fish will leave

  15. RTS says:

    1. It might affect the Puffins food.
    2. It might not because they flout.
    3.It could kill the Puffins.
    4. Yes because then the fish will go away and the Puffin will have no more food.

  16. M.J. says:

    1. The puffans food might die.
    2. They will get worm and will have no whare else to go.
    3. They will die.
    4. They will have no food.

  17. CD says:

    1.It will get really hot and all the fish will move to some where else leaving the puffins with nothing.

    2. There homes might get flooded.

    3. If the oceans become more acidic this will probably kill off the fish they eat.

    4. The puffins will be starved and have nothing to eat.

  18. t.b says:

    1. The puffins will die
    2.Most of the puffins will die.
    3. The puffins will move to a colder place
    4.The puffins willl not have anything to eat and there will be more animals that will be trying to hunt them.

  19. JY says:

    1. It will effect the puffins because all the marine life that they eat will move to a different climat so there mont be enough food for them to survive.
    2.It will effect the puffins on the rock because if every thing melts all the puffins wont have any were else to go.
    3.It will effect the puffins because the cemicals will start to make the puffins sick and they will eventually die.
    4.It will effect the puffins because if the fish start to change it wont be as healthy as usual and they might die.

  20. LS says:

    1.it could flood.
    2.it effects the puffins by killing them.
    3.they could drunw.
    4.if the fish die the puffins will die.

  21. TL says:

    2.If ice melts from Greenland, the sea water will rise and the island will become smaller leaving little land for the puffins to live on. And soon there will be no land for the puffins to live on.
    3.If the water becomes acidic, the fish will leave. So there will be no food for the puffins.
    4.If the fish change waters the puffins might not be used to the new fish.

  22. mj says:

    1. They would die and it will get hotter.
    2.They would die and the things they eat will be extinct.
    3.They would die and they will be acidic.
    4.They would die and the fish will die and the penguins will starve!!!

    : O

  23. M.S says:

    1. It might effect the puffins because they would have to leave. Then when the water warms up in their new home they would continue their journey.Then eventually they would run of homes and then may starve to death.
    2. It might effect the puffins because the ice keeps the water cool if the ice melts up then the puffin will lose it`s home and then problems will begin again.
    3. It might effect the puffins because then they will be in a bad water and could cause the puffins trouble. Not to mention all of it`s food will die and it will starve.
    4. It will effect the puffins because then their food will be gone and it would end up sarving and die the hard way(poor puffins) :(

    :0

  24. AP says:

    I think the puffins will leave.

  25. Anonymous says:

    i think puffins will leave when it gets to hot

  26. Anonymous says:

    1 it will ruin the puffins climate.

  27. JS says:

    The puffins are polar animals. So, with warm water, their species might become endangered.

  28. ON says:

    1. They will have no food.
    2. They will have no land and they will die underwater.
    3. all of the fish will die.
    4. all of the fish will leave and they will have no food.

  29. T.J.P says:

    puffins will drown because if their home gets fooded eventuly they will get tired of swimming and drown.

  30. J.C. says:

    The water level will rise and the puffins food source will die and so will the puffins.

  31. JM says:

    1.It will ruin the puffins climate.
    2.It can kill them
    3.they can freeze
    4.They wont be able to eat

  32. mz says:

    1 it will ruin the puffins habbitate 2. it can kill them.3.they can freeze4. they wont be able to eat.

  33. JS says:

    The sea level will get higher, and they will have no place to lay their eggs.

  34. EG says:

    1. When the water gets warmer they could get burnt.
    2. The water around Manticus Rock will rise and cover the rock.
    3. When they go swiming the acid might affect thier wings.
    4. The fish will die out.

  35. M.V. says:

    1. The effect is that the puffins will leave there home and there will be no food for the puffins.
    2. The puffins home will melt and they might die.
    3. The puffins will die because of the adicic. :(
    4. When the fish leave, the puffins will leave too.

  36. VF says:

    1.If the air gets warmer around the island, the puffins will start to feel uncomfortable in the new air and die.
    2. When the water level rises the ocean will eventually cover the island. Then, the puffins cant lay their eggs.
    3.when the water gets polutted, the fish that puffins eat will die, then the puffins will die.
    4. The fish will die and puffins will also die.

  37. JS says:

    1. The effect on the puffins will be the fish will want to leave, and there will be no more food for the puffins.
    2. The puffins won’t have a place to live because the ice will melt, where the puffins live.
    3. If the water gets to acidic ish will die, and there will be no more food.
    4. Since the fish will change they might want to leave to go to a warmer climite, if they leave there will be no food for the puffins they will be no more puiffins.

  38. T.J.P says:

    1. It could kill puffins
    2. the Island might get flooded
    3.the food will die out and their will be no ouffin
    4. if no fish their will be no puffin

  39. CB says:

    1.I think it will affect the puffens because it will be to hot for the puffens to repopulate.
    2.If the sea level because rises the ice melts it might ingulf the island
    3.The puffens might lose there food
    4.It can hert the puffen

  40. B.S. says:

    1. They would have no food soucre beacuse then it will die, then they will die. 2. It will effect the Puffins because the water will rise and then if the water gets higher than the island then the island will sink and they can’t lay there eggs. 3. No it wouldn’t effect the Puffins because they don’t have shells. 4. It would effect the Puffins because then the things that eat will go away from where they live and die.

  41. tjm says:

    1 they will die.

    2 the extra water will drown Mantinicus Rock.

    3 the waters would become deadly and the puffins will die.

    4 the puffins could become more pray than preditor

  42. J.C. says:

    2. It will drown the parts of the island that the puffins lay their eggs and they wont be able to lay their eggs.
    3. No it wouldn’t affect the puffins because they don’t have shells.
    4. They wouldn’t have anything to eat.

    • DB says:

      1. The puffins will got warmer, and the ice will melt were they live.
      2. Then the puffins will have no place to live.
      4. Then the puffins wont be able to cath food, because the fish will die, because they are not used to the warm climate.

  43. JB says:

    1. The puffin might not be able to adapt, and die out.
    2. It might make the island disappear.
    3. The fish might become extinct, and make the puffin die out.
    4. The puffin might never look the same, ever again.

  44. E.T says:

    1. the puffins might have to move and they could not find land to reproduce and a lot of the species might die and puffins could become extinct.

  45. mh says:

    The puffins will die or move to a another place

    The puffins will have to find a new home

    The puffins might become extinct

    The puffins might die because they will not be able to eat the fish because the fish changed

  46. P.O says:

    1. If the water and the air and water both get warmer around Mantinicus Rock, it would effect the puffins because the puffins camouflage in ice burgs. If the ice burgs melt because it is too warm, the Puffins will not be able to camouflage so easily. Also, when the water is warmer, the water is more clear, and puffins needdark water to camouflage. And, if the ice burgs melt, and the sea level rises, the place where the puffins were born might be under water and puffins might not be able to reproduce.

  47. M.S.-H. says:

    1. If the air got warmer, it might effect the puffins because puffins may only survive in a certain temperature so the puffins either have to move or die.

    2.The ice will melt and the sea level will rise. When the sea level rises, the water may cover the island so the puffins either don’t breed or go somewhere else to breed.

    3. The fish that the puffins eat may start to die and the puffin population may start to decrease because it isn’t eating enough or the right food.

    4. The puffins won’t be able to eat those fish anymore because the fish get bigger or they get too small to eat. The fish may also start to become predators and have sharp teeth. The fish then may start eating the puffins.

  48. O.P. says:

    Puffins like a cold climate and if the climate changes to warm the climate might not be suitable. So the puffins might have to move.

  49. E.T says:

    2. The ice in mantinicus rock might melt and the island would be underwater than the puffins won’t be able to reproduce because they don’t have a place to reproduce.

  50. LGAT says:

    1. The puffins might go to a larger piece of land.

    2. The sea level will rise and the island will get smaller.

    3. The puffins might get hurt by the acids or their food will all die.

    4.They might not get the right food.

  51. N.G. says:

    1. Puffins can’t survive in warm weather so they could hurt the puffins.
    2. Puffins come back to where they were born to lay their babies and if they were born on Mantinicus Rock they wouldn’t have a place to lay their babies
    3. Puffin’s food could be killed and puffins wouldn’t have anything to eat.
    4. The puffins could be hurt because the fish could have gone to another place so puffins won’t have as much food as they used to.

  52. EP says:

    1.If the ocean gets warmer,the ice will melt causing the ocean to rise. It may rise over Mantinicus rock, forcing the puffins to have thier children somewhere else. Also the fish that the puffins eat will have to move so the puffins will need to find more food and less will be living.
    2.The ocean will rise, covering Matinicus rock. The puffins will need to move elsewhere.
    3. The puffin’s prey will die, making the puffins search harder for food and thier population will decrease.
    4. If the fish that the puffins eat change, they might be faster and harder to catch. Also, they might have adapted so maybe they got poison so the puffins couldn’t eat them.

  53. Y.S. says:

    1. If the air and water gets warmer, the puffins might die because they might not be able to adapt very well to the warmer climate, since the puffins need cold climates to live in. When the puffin fly and swim, they might get a bad disease.
    2. If the ice on land begins to melt, the ice will turn to water, and flow into the ocean, making the ocean rise. The extra water will start rising onto the land where the puffins lived, soon leaving no land left.
    3. If the ocean becomes more acidic, when the puffins swim, the acid could really damage the puffins. Also, when the puffins swim for food, if their food is damaged or diseased and the puffins eat them, they could also get diseased or maybe even die.
    4. The puffins food might not be able to adapt to the warmer climate, so the puffins food may get diseased or die out in that area. If they die out, the puffins in that area might also die out because the puffins wouldn’t have enough food to survive.

  54. MC says:

    1. The puffins might not adapt and die out or they could find another habitat.
    2. The puffins might die out because of ocean level rise.
    3. The puffins will probably die out of starvation.
    4. The puffins will probably move to another habitat or they will die out.

  55. M.S. says:

    1. The puffins might not be able to live or move away because they are not used to warm water.

    2. The water will increase and the puffins will have to find a new place to have their babys.

    3. The puffins wiil not be able to live because the water is so bad for them.

    4. The puffins might not be able to eat the fish because the fish have changed.

  56. D.H.D.D. says:

    1. Their breeding spot might be underwater.

    2. M. rock will be underwater.

    3. the puffins might get sick

    4.it might make them sick

  57. T.A.G says:

    1. The puffins might have to move to a different location.
    2. The puffins will not have enough room because of sea level rise.
    3. The puffins will not be able to find food because some of it might die.
    4. The puffins will probably move to a different place.

  58. P.O says:

    2. If the ice begins to melt, the puffins won’t have enough camouflage.
    3. If the oceans become more acidic, the puffins’ food would die, and puffins would die because they did not have enough food.
    4. If the fish puffins eat die, the puffins won’t have enough food so they will slowly die.

  59. N.C. says:

    1. The puffins can get to hot and die off because they can not survive in such hot weather.
    2. If ice on land melts then the sea level will rise and Mantinicus Rock might get covered with water. If it is covered with water they may not find another place to lay eggs and so they won’t lay eggs.
    3. If the oceans become more acidic than the food for the puffins may die out and they won’t have anything to eat.
    4. If the puffins food changes they may not be able to eat it so they can’t eat.

  60. ats says:

    1. the heat might submerge the island they were born on and they wouldn’t have a place to lay eggs and the entire species may become extinct.

    2. the water will rise and their island will submerge and they wouldn’t have a place to lay eggs and the entire species may become extinct.

    3. the puffins might get sick

    4. the puffins will not have food and die.

  61. J.D. says:

    1-The puffins might breathe in pollution. That might cause them to die, and then their species might become extinct.
    2-The water will rise and then when they go to have their babies they can’t because there is no more land. Then they might not have babies, and scientists might not find them in that water.
    3-When they eat food, it might be acidic. That might cause them to die. Then there whole species might become extinct.
    4-The puffins might not get enough food, causing them to die.

  62. O.P. says:

    The sea level will rise and submerge the island where the puffins live. So the puffins will not be able to reproduce.

  63. CSM says:

    1. It may effect the puffins because it might be effecting the puffin and the puffins will die.

    2. The puffins live on the ice and they need the ice to live.

    3. The ocean has fish in it and puffins eat the fish.

    4. The puffins will die and change because they eat fish.

  64. E.T says:

    3. There food might die and they could possibly starve and forever become extinct and puffins will be gone, and I will be sad.

  65. S.A says:

    1. Puffin’s food will die of because of the heat.
    2. Puffins will die off because they use the ice sheets for camouflage and if the ice melts more animals will eat the puffins the those animals will increase while the puffins will decrease
    3. Puffins food will be killed off because they cant survive in heat.
    So that means puffins will die cause they have no food .
    4. If there are no fish for the puffins, that means when the puffins come back they will have to adapt somewhere else, or they will die off

  66. KFL says:

    1. The water will get warmer and the food they eat might die and they won’t be able to find food.
    2. The water will rise and it can drown the puffins.
    3. The plankton won’t be able to form shells and will die and the puffins won’t be able to find food.
    4. the puffins might die.

  67. O.P. says:

    The food source of the puffin might get diseased and it will not be able to get enough food.

  68. j.d says:

    1.they wont be able to have babies.
    2.no it wont effect them because they dont have shells.
    3they wouldnt have fish to eat any more.

  69. J.M says:

    2. if the ice begins to melt than the puffins will not have a part of their habitat

  70. J.N. says:

    2. If the ice melts, when the puffins come back to the place they were born, then they might go somewhere else to have their babies.

  71. F.V says:

    1. If the air and water become warmer the puffins would either go away, or die.
    2.If the ice melts the water will rise and it will make Mantinicus Rock sink into the ocean.
    3.If the ocean becomes more acidic the fish will die and the puffin would not have any food.
    4.They would die.

  72. F.C. says:

    3. If the ocean becomes more acidic the fish would get sick ands when the puffins eat the fish they would get sick too.

  73. G.K says:

    If the air and water become warmer it is bad for the Puffins because the glaciers will start to melt and there will be sea level rise. That can hurt the place they were born it can become flooded and then they might not reproduce.

  74. J.G. says:

    1).The puffins will die out because of the change of tempature.
    2).The extra water will drown Mantinicus Rock
    3).The waters would become deadly and the puffins will die.
    4). The puffins could become more pray than preditor.

  75. J.M says:

    1.They will die.
    2.The island might get flooded
    3.If the ice melts it will cause the water to rise and it may be more acidic.

  76. SVS says:

    1. Then ice and water around Mantinicus Rock get warmer then the ice will get warmer and then ice will melt.
    2. Then ice will melt and maybe a Puffin was born there! Then the puffin might come back to have its baby there, and there will be nothing for it to give birth
    3. If it becomes more Acidic then the puffins can maybe not give birth
    4. If the water gets warmer then maybe the fish will die and then the Puffins will have NOTHING to eat

  77. cz says:

    1 they will die
    It will drown the parts of the island that the puffins lay their eggs and they wont be able to lay their eggs.
    3 the waters would become deadly and the puffins will die.
    4. They wouldn’t have anything to eat.

  78. cz says:

    It will drown the parts of the island that the puffins lay their eggs and they wont be able to lay their eggs.
    3 the waters would become deadly and the puffins will die.
    4. They wouldn’t have anything to eat.

  79. F.C. says:

    4.It would effect the puffins because they would have less food.

  80. Z.A. says:

    1.They wont get enough food because the air,water,and Mantinicus Rocks will get warmer.

  81. F.C. says:

    2. The puffins homes would flood.

  82. S.C says:

    1 It will affect the puffuns by having them to eiether migreting or they will not give brith.

  83. tg says:

    1. The puffins will get to hot and the fish that they eat will leave
    2. The ice will melt and start to flood so the Puffins will die, drown or be forced to leave and find another place to lay their eggs
    3. If the planton dies then the artic cod will die and then the puffins will die
    4. If the fish they eat leave the puffins will starve and die.

  84. S.C says:

    2 The ice will turn water and it will probaly flood the island.

  85. T.K says:

    1.The puffins won’t have any places to lay eggs.
    2.The island will be sunk down and the puffins can’t lay eggs.
    3.The puffins might die or lay there eggs somewhere else.
    4.The puffins will die cause the water is hot.

  86. S.G.L says:

    1.The puffins will move to colder places.
    2.I extra water wil drown the mountain.
    3.The puffins will have no place to ley there eggs and they will die.
    4.They will have nothing to eat.

  87. Sam B. says:

    1. They would’nt be able to survive and then they would go bye bye.
    2.Maybe the place they were born was there so their birth place would get flooded.
    3.They have no shells so it wont effect them.
    4.They would’nt have any food.

  88. JM says:

    1. The puffins food will die because the fish needs cold water.
    2.The puffins island will maybe sink.
    3.The puffins will be forced to lay there eggs somewhere else.
    4.It will effect them because ther food needs cold water.

  89. tb says:

    1.The puffins will get hot and the fish and they will starve because the fish they eat will leave
    2.The ice will melt and cause a flood to happen and then the puffins will die
    3.The cycle in which the puffin is in will be ruined so the puffin and its prey will die
    4.the puffins will not have any food left because the fish will leave.

  90. SL says:

    4.If the fish that live around Matinicus Rock leave,the puffins won’t have anything to eat.3.If the oceans become more acidic,the puffins will die or leave.2.If the snow dries up,the puffins will leave Matinicus Rock.1.If the water and air get warmer,the puffins won’t be able to live there.

  91. OH says:

    1.The would tn be able to surive and they will go bye.
    2. The place the live might get flooded.
    3. They have no shells it will not efact them.
    4.They will have no food to eat.

  92. B.B. says:

    1. It would affect the puffins becuase they like warm water.

    2. The island might melt.

    3.THe puffins will leave.

    4.the fish would leave.

  93. SIS says:

    1. If the water gets warmer then the puffins will move to a nother spot because puffins like cold water.
    2.The warm air might afect the puffins because they are arctic birds.
    3.They have no shells so it wont afect them.
    4.It will afect the puffins because the puffins eat fish.

  94. NV says:

    1. It might effect the water when it gets warmer because the Puffins will get to hot and die but the water will help glaciers melt wich nwill make more water.
    2. It might effect the Puffins by them having to die because of all the water on the island and it is also flooded so it will be almost underwater.
    3. The Puffins will loose all of there food.
    4. The Puffins food will not be there any more and they will starve and die so they will become extinct.

  95. S.C says:

    3 It will affect the puffuns by making them by because it will poulualet the island.
    4 The puffuns will starve without the fish.

  96. MM says:

    1. It would effect the puffin to lay it’s eggs.

    2. If the ice melt the ocean would be worm

    3. The puffin would leave the eggs and never come back.

    4. The fish would

  97. amt says:

    1.If the water and air gets warmer the Puffins will want to move somwhere colder because they like that type of climate, and that might cause problems.
    2.If ice melts on land there might be a flood wich also might cause the Puffins to move somewhere else.
    3.If the ocean becomes more acidic the ocean can change and loose P.H. wich is not good for the whole ecosystem and affects the food of the Puffin then would effect the Puffins because there is no food for them
    4. If the water gets warmer the fish would die and there would be no food for the Puffins.

  98. lms says:

    1.If the air and water get wamer the puffins might die.
    2.Ifthe ice on the land melts the place where the puffins live will get fulled.
    3.It will affect the puffins because the do not have shells.
    4.The fish will move and the puffins will not have food.

  99. VT says:

    1. They stop breeding and die.
    2. They stop breeding and die.
    3. They die.
    4. They starve to death.

  100. DF says:

    1. They stop breeding and die
    2. The water rises, they stop breeding, and they die
    3.They die.
    4.They starve, and die

  101. DJ says:

    1.The puffins will be ruined and killed
    2.Their islands will get flooded
    3.The puffins will lose their food
    4.It will damage the puffin

  102. pk says:

    1 they will die.

    2 the extra water will drown Mantinicus Rock.

    3 the waters would become deadly and the puffins will die.

    4 the puffins could become more pray than preditor

  103. ja says:

    1.The puffins wouldn’t have the cold water that they need.
    2.They wont have land to lay their eggs.
    3. They will have to adapt to the warm water.
    4.they might not like the different fish.

  104. J G. says:

    1. The storms will be more dangerous to them
    2. The puffins might have no place to have babies
    3. The puffins could die
    4. The puffins might get sick

  105. ST says:

    1. They shall stop breeding.
    2. The place that they hatched might be sunk.
    3. It could kill them.
    4. They could die from starvation.

  106. mtk says:

    1.puffin’s need cooloer warmer
    2.the ice that melts will make the water higher and the water will cover the land and they need land in order to lay their eggs
    3.they won’t be able to lay their eggs
    4.puffins won’t have anything to eat

  107. M.C. says:

    1.) Well, if the air and water both get warmer, the puffins might die out from the heat.
    2.) This might affect the puffins because ice is made out of water, so when it melts, it feeds water into the ocean. And since puffin eggs are born on small islands, when the puffins come back, their island might be gone!
    3.)It will affect the puffins because the water they swim in will be acid. And acid is not good for animals that live in the sea.
    4.) Well, the fish might swim away to colder waters because the water is too warm for there climate, so the puffins have no fish to eat.

  108. M.S says:

    1.)With the thick feathers the Puffins have, the Puffins will die. Because what if I put you in a thick winter coat and put you in a really hot place, then it could be really dangerous for you. And it is the same for the puffins.
    2.)If the puffin comes back to where it was born and their land is melted then the possibility of the Puffins laying their eggs is very low.
    3.)The acid in the water is really not good for the Puffins, it could really harm the.
    4.)The fish will swim away to colder water, then the Puffins will have no fish to eat.

  109. YG says:

    1) The island will submerge and the puffins will have no place to lay their eggs.
    2) They will have no place to land because they can’t stay in the water that long. They might die because they need air.
    3) If the water has acid the puffins can’t survive in the water.
    4) If the fish that live around them change they will have no food because puffins eat fish.

  110. BL says:

    1. It effects the puffins because the puffins are use to cold water and they maybe cannot survive the hot water.

    2. It effects the puffins because when they are born, when they can go and swim, they would go out and swim and 5 years later, they will come back where they were born and have to lay eggs and since global warming is going on, the place might melt and they can’t lay their eggs. And that will make the specie endangered.

    3. It will effect the puffins because the acidic going to make the puffins extincted.

    4. It will effect the puffins because they will have no food to eat.

  111. J.V. rocks says:

    1. If the air and water gets warmer around Mantinicus Rock it will effect the puffins by their home island dissapearing so they cant lay eggs. So that means they will die out of not reproducing their kind.

    2. i anwsered number 2 for number 1

    3. They will die from the pollution because it will spread quickly and also hurt other species.

    4. It will effect their diet because they might not like their taste anymore.

  112. J.M. says:

    1. If the air gets warmer the puffins land will go under water and then the puffin will not have any where to lay there eggs. So there will be less of the puffin.
    2. If the ice melts the puffin will have no where to live and when they come back to there home they will have no where to lay there eggs.
    3.If the water gets too acidic the puffin food might die and the puffins will not have any food to eat.
    4. If the fish change they might stop liking the fish.

  113. RC says:

    why does everyone keep yelling about the future and global warming blob

  114. ST says:

    the penguins diet will chage and effect the envirment

  115. KM says:

    1. They could die all the fish we eat would die out they would be extinct
    2. If the ice melts they could drown
    3. The water would become deadly and the puffins would die
    4. The puffins would become more pray then preditor

  116. T H says:

    1 All the fish we eat would die out.
    2 It would affect by the puffins not having a home. Or there natral habitat.
    4 The puffins wouldnt have anything to eat.

  117. L.G. says:

    1)The puffins food could move to another place and the puffins would starve.
    2)The land where the puffins were born and where they wamt to lay there eggs might be gone.
    3)All their food might die and then they will starve.
    4)The puffins might not be able to adapt to the diffrent fish fash enough so they could starve and die.

  118. A.G. says:

    1: It could effect the puffins because the water level could flood the island, and it could get WAY too hot for the puffins.
    2: It could raise the water level, and like in #1, it could flood the island.
    4: It might make the puffins starve, or make them eat different things to stay alive.

  119. J.G.C says:

    1.it might make it hotter so that they woul die.
    2.they will have no were to lay eggs or to hunt or live.
    3.it will be more warm and there would be yuckey stuff in the ocean.
    4. ther would be no food for them to eat.

  120. J.M. says:

    1. If the air and water around the island get warmer, the puffins will be affected because the water level will rise and the island will be under water
    2. The ice will melt and there will not be enough cold air and they might not be able to get then remaining cold air through their thick feathers.
    4. When the fish around there change, the puffind might not be able/want to adapt to the changes

  121. lk says:

    3. The fish that the puffins eat will disapear.
    4. The puffins will either starve or find new food.

  122. KB says:

    If the water and the rocks get warmer it will affect the puffins because it the ice will melt and the water level will raise witch causes the island to flood. If the ice melt that will cause the puffins to become extinct because puffins live is cold climates. Puffins eat sand eels which also live in the cold water. So if the water gets warmer than the eels will become extinct.

  123. M.P. says:

    1: I think that the puffins will move back up north and find the same problem. 2: I think that the island will flood and the puffins will be forsed to move. 4: the would move north and the puffins would have to eat some thing else

  124. CJF says:

    The puffins will die because they need to be in the cold weather.

  125. DTR says:

    The puffins will die because they are used to colder climate.
    The sea level will get way too high.
    They will become very sick.
    They wont be able to eat the same way. They will have to change too.

  126. IC says:

    1. It might kill the puffins
    2.The island might become fludded

  127. CJF says:

    The puffins will die because they need to be in the cold weather.
    They won’t be able to survive because of the hight of the sea.
    They will get sick.
    They will have to change too.

  128. MJ says:

    1. there could be no more food.
    2.It might drown the puffins.
    3.The food might die out.
    4.They will not have food.

  129. trc says:

    if the water gets warmer the puffins will die out

  130. j.l. says:

    1:If the climate gets warmer then the fish will go to a warmer climate starving the puffins.
    2:The island might get flooded
    3:The water could become toxic and the puffins might die
    4:The fish might leave and that means no food for birdy

  131. gs says:

    it might effect the puffins because all the fish would die out. the puffins will not have any fish.

  132. Co says:

    1.The pufins could drown, or get confused.
    2.They will not survive because the level of the sea is too high.
    3.They will become very sick.
    4.The the fish will not be as nutrishus as they were.

  133. JB says:

    1. The puffins will die
    2.it will drown the island
    3.there food might die, so they will too
    4.the puffins won’t have anything to eat and will die

  134. MY says:

    i think that if the water near matinicus rock gets too hot, the puffins will go somewhere else or get confused because they like cold water.

  135. kf says:

    1.the penguins will not be used to the warm climate and will suffer
    2. it will melt and the sea level will rise
    3. there won’t be anough food for the sea life to eat
    4.the puffins will not have any fish which is there food to eat

  136. elp says:

    :( Well if the water and air does get warmer it might effect the puffins because the like cold weather not warm . And they might move out of their original habitat.Dont go puffins, I love you puffins! :(

  137. MO says:

    1 what they eat will die then they will die 2 Since the water would be so high they would not be able to survive 3 if the water is acidic all of the fish will die 4 the things they eat would go away

  138. GG says:

    1. The puffins will not enjoy the warm water because the love cold water
    2. The puffins will not feel right because there home is missing
    3. Puffins will die because of loss of food
    4. Puffins will die

  139. RES says:

    Q1. They will lose there habitat and food.
    Q2. The climate will get warmer and the puffins will suffer.
    Q3. The puffins will lose there home and food which may cause them to die :(
    Q4. Once again they will lose there food that they have to eat for survival :( :(

  140. trc says:

    ifte ice melts they will loose homes

  141. Mek says:

    I think if the air and water might effect the Puffins by they like cold water and if it gets warmer it might make the water warmer. Also if the Puffins eat stuff in the Ocean then the things that the puffins eat might lose there habitat.:()

  142. trc says:

    if the ice melts they will loose homes

  143. tc says:

    1. The puffins could overheat

    2. the puffins might drown

    3. if the water becomes more acidic the puffins might lose their food source

    4. the puffins might become confused and die

  144. H.G.A. says:

    Answer to question 1: This might effect the puffins because puffins like cold areas if it gets warmer they could become extinct. If the water gets warmer the puffin and many other animals will sieze to exist on earth. I hope puffins exist on planet earth for as long as possible.

  145. T.o. says:

    Because the can be over heated

  146. T.R says:

    All of the fish that the puffins eat will die.

  147. T.o. says:

    the water can over flow the land

  148. M.D. says:

    I think that they would become extinct.

  149. NV says:

    They will move north.

  150. JAPR says:

    1. The puffins will become very warm and might not adapt to the warm air and warm water and likely get extinct by heat.

    2. The puffins will become discontinued because when the puffins need to settle to make there eggs the land will be floded

    4. Well it maters how they change if the water is too hot in that area for the fish puffins would starve if the fish died the starve so the puffins will starve.

  151. J.P says:

    # 1. Alot of animals will die and itcoould be the end.

    # 2. the puffins may become extinct

    # 4. the puffins will be forced to move to a different location

  152. M.U says:

    Good luck on your trip

  153. B.S. says:

    I think puffins will move someware else.

  154. W.M. says:

    The water will rise and the puffins will have no home. The puffins will have to adapt and find a new home or beome extinct.

  155. M.D. says:

    1.) I think that they will become extinct.
    2.) I think that their homes will be destroyed.
    3.)———————————————
    4.) Maybe, they might get sick from eating the fish.

  156. A.G. says:

    #1- This can effect the puffins on how they survive. They may not be able to adpt to the water tempature change. That could result in extinction.
    #2- This can effect the puffins on Matinicus Rock because if the place they were born is, is gone, they might not be able to lay their eggs. This could also result in extinction.
    #3- The puffins might not be able to eat or drink if this happens. All of the fish that they eat would become extinct from the acid.
    #4- The puffins would probably have to move more up North, because all of the fish they eat might not be able to adapt to the water climate.

  157. K.L. says:

    Answer to question 1: The warming of air and water around Mantinicus Rock can effect the puffins because it could effect the way they survive. The puffins may not be able to adapt to the temperatere of the water when it changes whick may lead to extinction.
    Answer to question 2: It may effect the puffins in Matinicus Rock if the ice on land begins to melt because if a majority of the land is underwater, it will make it hard to lay their eggs, which may also lead to extinction.
    Answer to question 3:The puffins would not be able to get the food they need if the water became more acidic. This is because all of the fish that they need to eat would become extinct from the acid in the water.
    Answer to question 4:If the water got warmer around where the puffins live, the puffins would probably have to move up farther North, because they would not be able to adapt to the water temperature.

  158. A.L says:

    1:If the water and air get warmer the iceberges could start to meltl and the puffins home land could get beried under the water and the puffins could become insinct or they would have to find a new home.2:The puffins could become instinct or have to find new homes to have thier babys because thier original homes would be under water.3: I think that the puffins could die because the acid could get into thier skin or the food that they need to survie will die and so will they.4: Once again it is posible that they can die because thier food would move to colder climates or thier food will die because it is to hot for that spicies.

  159. A.C says:

    1)If the water and air around Mantinicus Rock gets warmer the puffins may (A) not go back to the rock where they were born because of the sea levels rising or (B) become extinct

  160. ms says:

    1. It might get to cold for the puffins

  161. B.C. says:

    1. The puffins might overheat and will die.

  162. B.C says:

    I agree with CM

  163. hm says:

    They can die out for ever.

  164. ms says:

    2. It is going to get to cold for the puffins.

  165. AC says:

    3. I think the puffin population will decrease and can die out at one point!

  166. B.C. says:

    2. The Puffins might drown because there won’t be enough land to live on.

  167. s.k.a says:

    question3. all of the shelled cretures will not have a home.

  168. rdo says:

    1.The puffins might over heat and breath to hot air.
    2.The ocean will get higher and than when the puffins go back to islands to lay eggs the islands will may not be there.
    3.The puffins food source may not be able to make shells and the food source may die out.
    4.The puffins may not have any food to eat.

  169. L.S says:

    1.If it gets warmer on the rock the puffins might die because they come back.
    2.The rock might drown and the penguins might die because they don’t have a place to have there babies.
    3. The puffins food source might not be able to produce shells.
    4. The puffins won’t be able to eat anything because there prey would die.

  170. c.g says:

    If it gets warmer the puffins will get to hot and die

  171. RS says:

    2. The puffins might not have a place to breath fresh air.

  172. G.L says:

    1.The puffins might overheat

    2. I believe puffins homes will be destroyed

    3. The puffins might lose their food if there is any more acid

    4. The puffins will need to move

  173. ms says:

    3. It might start to make the puffins go enxtinct

  174. B.C. says:

    3. If the water gets too hot, the Puffins might have to migrate. 8)

  175. s.a says:

    questiun3. it will affect them by they will have now were to land

  176. E.C says:

    1. it might get to hot for the puffins and it may be to humid
    2. It will give out more water because ice is solid water
    3. How might it effect the puffins is that they may get sick
    4. They will have more space to live and swim

  177. A.C says:

    1. I think that if the water get warmer as well as the air the puffins can get over heated and die out!

  178. nm says:

    1. It might effect the puffins by them getting over heated.

    2. It will effect the puffuns anthe rocks by puffins will drond if water rises and rocks will go under water.

    3. It will effect the puffins and the rocks by the pffins will die and rocks will disapere.

    4. It will effect the puffins by they will not have any food.

  179. T.A.G says:

    #3
    it will effect them in meny ways one is that when other things die then other things die then other things die then other things die then other things die then other things die then puffins die then other things die all because of pollution.

  180. RS says:

    4. The puffins might get over populated.

  181. B.C. says:

    4. If the fish there die out, the Puffins might go extinct too because the fish would be their prey. :)

  182. B.C says:

    2. The island is going to be under the water.
    3. Because if the Puffins are in the water with the acid its bad for them and then they will die.
    4.If the fish that live around them move then they will also die because they dont have the right fish to eat.:)

  183. jb says:

    1. If the water around the puffins get warmer the puffins will get really hot because they have some fur or feathers around them to keep them warm. 2. If the ice melts the water will rise and it will cover the islands that are in the ocean.3.It will effect the acidic by making the puffins hot and the puffins would get hot and die. 4. It will effect the puffins there by making them warm and the fish they eat will die out because they will be really hot.

  184. H.M says:

    The puffins can die out for ever. That makes me sad very sad for them.

  185. Z.B. says:

    1. It might effect puffins because if they like cold water and they like cold weather the puffins can over heat and die.

    2. It might effect puffins because when the puffins come back to lay their eggs the land might be under water.

    3. If the oceans become more acidic it might kill the puffins.

    4. It might effect puffins because if its the fish that puffins eat can’t live in warm water that kind of fish might die out then if the puffins can’t find food they can die.

    I hope people start taking beter care of the enviroment.

  186. c.g says:

    They will die because the ice is what they rest on

  187. H.M says:

    1. I think they are going to be hot.

  188. T.A.G says:

    puffins are sooo cool. :)

  189. A.P. says:

    1. It will effect the puffins because if it is to warm, the puffins will die.
    2. If the ice begins to melt than the area will get warm and they will die.
    3. If the water gets to hot, the puffins might have to migrate.
    4. They will die.

  190. A.C says:

    2. I think it will effect them by the water rising because of the ice melting and they could die.

  191. B.K.R. says:

    If the ice gets warmer it will melt causing the water to rise and it may cause the water to be more acidic and that could kill the puffins food source and then the puffins will have a lot to worry about.

  192. B.K.R. says:

    1. It will effect the puffins because if it is to warm, the puffins will die.
    2. If the ice begins to melt than the area will get warm and they will die.

  195. B.K.R. says:

    You might have a lot of fun

  196. A.O.B says:

    1.If it gets warmer on the rock the puffins might die because they come back.
    2.The rock might drown and the penguins might die because if thyy don’t lay their babies were they got born they won’t lay them so the species will get extincted.:(
    3. The puffins food source might not be able to produce shells.
    4. The puffins won’t be able to eat anything because there prey would die and not come back.

  197. :) says:

    The ice will rise and kill the puffins! :)

  198. ER says:

    1.If the air gets warmer the fishj might go north so the puffins would have nothing to eat.
    2. If the ice melts it might flood the puffins.
    3. If the water gets to hot the puffins might die of warmth.
    4. They will die.

  199. A.O.B says:

    Hope this does not happen :)

  200. annonomuyous says:

    1. It might effect puffins because if they like cold water and they like cold weather the puffins can over heat and die. all there food will die out or get sick.

    2. It might effect puffins because if they come back to lay there eggs the place might be underwater.
    3. If the oceans become more acidic it might kill the puffins and there species will die out.

    Hi!!! Don’t kill puffins

  203. E.G.G. says:

    1. Then ice and water around Mantinicus Rock will get warmer then the ice will get warmer and then ice will melt and go away.2. Then ice will melt . Then the puffin might come back to have its baby there, and there will be nothing for it to give birth on and the baby will not be born.
    3. If it becomes more Acidic then the puffins can maybe not give birth to babys since their spot where they were born dissapears.
    4. If the fish that they eat dissapearand go up north the puffins will have nothing to eat and may get sick and die.

    Hope you have FUN!

    If we take back the strife than the Puffins will be safe and sound. But, if we keep on hurting animals than we are actully hurting ourselves. We were not created to kill or toture animals with too much carbon dioxede or too much chemicals. Puffins are just like humans but they are created in a different form.
