To the ends of the Earth: Penguins and Polar extremes!

Hear about how Adélie penguins forage in their native habitat, and how the frozen south might be going through some major changes!

  • Javed Riaz, PhD candidate UTAS

Adélie penguins are an important indicator species in the Southern Ocean. Javed’s study of their foraging strategies showed they do not conform with traditional foraging expectations – and it could influence future conservation planning and resource management.

  • Dr Will Hobbs, Researcher UTAS

Until recently Antarctic sea ice was one of the few parts of Earth unaffected by climate change. But ice cover plummeted in 2016, with the record lowest ice cover in 2022. Is this Southern Ocean change, or just a reminder of our Antarctic ignorance?
