Penguins 101: Everything You Need To Know About Penguins

April 24, 2017

Learn everything you need to know about penguins from internationally acclaimed penguinlogist Dr. Tom Hart.  Hart and the PenguinWatch team travel to Antarctica with Quark Expeditions several times annually to place time-lapse cameras near penguin colonies to see if there are differences in the timing and success of breeding .

His research aims to understand:

  • Why these populations are changing and what we can do about it
  • How areas with a fishery compare to those without a fishery
  • How areas with sea ice loss compare to areas with more stable sea ice
