Why Antarctica Slowly Turning Green!

by TuTu

Can Antarctica turn green which is normally covered by a sheet of white snow. If you too are thinking no, you are thinking wrong. Actually, the pictures released by NASA are proving our thinking wrong. A layer of algae has been seen in Antarctica covered with thick and white sheets of snow in these images.

This algae is spreading its legs here very fast. Scientists are also surprised by such a change on the surface of the ice-covered Antarctica. However, scientists believe that penguins may be behind this change.

Scientists also believe that these algae are developing from the feces of birds and animals. One reason for this is also because the penguins reside in the five km radius of which such algae have been found. Cambridge University botanists have for the first time prepared a map of the dormant algae.
