Rats are survivors, second only to cockroaches. Rats gotta eat. Too bad for the penguin, but nature isn't into species preferrence.

I love how we humans take exception to one creature eradicating another while we go blithly forth doing the same thing on a global scale.

GET RID OF THE RATS. They aren't indigenous to this fricken island.

I'd rather see Penguins than humans. Sink the gddam boats of these useless eaters who are killing EVERYTHING just to feed MORE useless eaters.

We have enough humans.

Give the Penguins a break. They can handle the pelicans.

Are the Sea Shepherds aware of this problem? Would they protect the penguins? Or are they only protecting whales & dolphins?
