Looking Forward: The Race to Save Antarctic Penguins

The penguin populations in Antarctica are rapidly changing due to the effects of climate change. Over the past 30 years, scientists have studied the penguins around Palmer Station along the West Antarctic Peninsula, and have observed a significant decline in the local Adelie penguin populations.

John Weller at Only One has also observed these changes as a photographer and activist. In a new short documentary, he shares his story and stunning videos. The documentary also features PAL Co-PI Megan Cimino, who describes her research into the penguin populations around Palmer Station, and what increasing ocean temperatures will likely mean for the local ecosystem in the future.
