The Wildlife Conservation Society and Birdlife International have released the first atlas of the Patagonian Sea, and it's all thanks to penguins, albatrosses, and other marine animals, reports ENN. The organizations fitted various animals with satellite transmitters to track migratory patterns and feeding spots, and the atlas is said to contain the most accurate maps of the area in existence. The Patagonian Sea reaches from southern Brazil to southern Chile.
