Mass mourning: Scores of Emperor penguins in an act of communal grief after the deaths of their chicks in Antarctica
‘Part of my job is to accept that with the spectacular sights of nature also come the stark facts of life, and to see Emperor Penguins mourning in a human-like way over the death of their chicks is heart-wrenching,’ he said.
‘They hunch over like they are in a state of grief and they wander around the frozen ice wastes attempting to locate their chicks.
‘It is difficult to say how and why they died, but I was told by other scientists that it was not unheard of.
‘Weather and things like starvation, if there is a food shortage, can cause this kind of sad event.’
"Our job is to love others without stopping to inquire whether or not they are worthy. That is not our business and, in fact, it is nobody’s business. What we are asked to do is to love, and this love itself will render both ourselves and our neighbors worthy."
