Science Exchange Wallingford: Penguin Watch:  How You Can Make a Difference to Penguin Survival

Penguin Watch:  How You Can Make a Difference to Penguin Survival by Dr Tom Hart, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford

Tuesday 26 th  September, 2017, Wallingford School Library

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.

Science Exchange Wallingford’s next meeting is at 7.30pm on Tuesday 26 th September in Wallingford School Library, St George’s Road, Wallingford. Meetings are very informal. Speakers talk for about half an hour, then we break for refreshments and return for a lively question and answer session.
We are grateful that the support of local company Triaster, Wallingford School and the generosity of
our speakers ensures that each event is free to attend. We are also privileged to be a Café
Scientifique. (http://www.cafescientifique.org/).
