This World Penguin Day, find out what counting penguins in the Antarctic can tell us about the health of our oceans.
Everyone loves penguins – with their waddling walks and fluffy chicks, it’s hard not to be charmed by them. But sadly, these iconic Antarctic residents are in trouble.
At the start of this year, Greenpeace travelled to the Antarctic, on the final stage of our Pole to Pole expedition. We were joined by a team of penguin scientists from Stony Brook and Northeastern Universities, who were there to count penguins – hundreds and hundreds of penguins.
