This is the title of the statement, published jointly by EGBAMM and Life Sciences, to clear up the misleading headlines about 150,000 Adelie penguins dying because of a giant iceberg. This (mis)information was in the News in the beginning of the week and spread on the Internet so rapidly that we felt we had to react. You can read the statement at http://www.scar.org/2016/840-no-150-000-adelie-penguins-did-not-die-overnight
