Science Exchange Wallingford will be looking at penguins in September. Dr Tom Hart of Oxford University's Zoology Department will be talking about the network of cameras he has set up in the world's coldest places. The meeting will be in Wallingford School Library on Tuesday 26 September at 7.30 pm. All welcome.

Amanda Holland writes:

The Polar regions are well known as harsh environments, but as a result they are often data deficient
for key animals like penguins, which are threatened by climate change and fishing.

Dr Hart will talk about his research with penguins and other marine predators, in particular the
network of cameras he has set up around the Antarctic and more recently, from the Arctic. He will
describe the innovative solutions that he and his team have developed to monitor animals
remotely. And he will explain how you can join in with this essential research via Penguin Watch.
