Emperor penguins slide into water

World Penguin Day

A trio of Emperor penguins playfully slides into Antarctic water. These iconic birds are threatened by ecosystem shifts, including the melting of sea ice—a solemn reminder of climate change on this World Penguin Day. WHOI researchers Scott Doney, Hal Caswell, and Chris Linder will join members of the Center for Biological Diversity and The Nature Conservancy to address climate change in polar environments at a public forum and art exhibit on May 4th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Registration is required for this free event, titled From Penguins to Polar Bears: The Impacts of Climate Change.
