Adelie penguins

We're Outta There!

Associate Scientist Mak Saito saw plenty of Adélie penguins during his International Polar Year expedition to Antarctica in 2009. His study focused on the collection of sea-ice and water column algae, but another project soon emerged. Saito and his wife, Elizabeth, co-authored Antarctic Adventure, a children's book that describes the adventure of fieldwork on the Southern Continent, what algae are, what glaciers look like, and the varied Antarctic wildlife, including whales and penguins.
