Antarctic Sound. This body of water separates the Antarctic Peninsula from the Joinville Island group. The Antarctic Sound is one of the best places to view the fascinating activities of the gentoo penguin. The third-largest of its species, the gentoo can grow up to 30 inches in height and weigh up to 12 pounds. Over the last few decades, the Southern Ocean has experienced a significant warming trend, showing clear evidence of climate change. The Antarctic Peninsula has been feeling climate change the most with a massive 9°F (5°C) warming in average winter temperatures over the last 50 years.
