Emperor penguins (Aptenodytes fosteri) traverse the fast ice from their breeding colony near Snow Hill Island, Antarctica, to the open ocean to feed. Because of their reliance on sea ice for incubating eggs and chicks, emperor penguins are particularly vulnerable to climate change and are being considered for listing under the US Endangered Species Act. In an article in this issue, Catherine Foley and her colleagues discuss the listing of foreign species under the US Endangered Species Act. Photograph: Catherine Foley.
