Meet Oceanites – Our New Scientific Penguin Counting Friends
Oceanites, a non-profit scientific and educational foundation, is dedicated to the conservation of our world’s oceans, islands, and wildlife. Their mission involves monitoring penguin populations in Antarctica and Sub-Antarctic regions, conducting the only project monitoring the entirety of the Antarctic Peninsula and assisting in the long-term protection of this fragile ecosystem.
We are delighted to announce that we are teaming up with Oceanites for a critical partnership in Scientific Penguin Population Monitoring. Oceanites Scientists and Representatives will be joining our Citizen Science program throughout our 23/24 season as we embark on expeditions to the Southern Ocean to assist in their oceanographic research, specifically in counting penguins.
Counting penguins on the Antarctic Peninsula
This research is instrumental in tracking oceanic changes and their impact on these flightless birds. Monitoring keystone species like penguins is pivotal in assessing the health of ecosystems, especially in the Antarctic.
