This breaks my heart

There's this huge iceberg that's the size of Rhode Island. It's collided with Ross Island, and made all the surrounding ice in the ocean thicken to much more than average. Negatively effected by the thicker ice are seals and penguins, who can't stay submerged long enough to get from Ross Island out to open ocean to go hunting. Here's a video of seals fighting over an airhole because the ice is too thick for them to make their own as needed.
