Tagging penguins

Help From a Friend

In Terre Adélie, Antarctica, WHOI biologist Stephanie Jenouvrier holds a five-month-old emperor penguin chick in preparation to tag it. Tagging young birds, coupled with a long-term study of this penguin colony by French scientists, allows Jenouvrier and colleagues to know individual birds' travel and foraging history. Jenouvrier used extensive data from this colony in her research, constructing models that forecast a drastic decline in future emperor penguin numbers due to climate change.
