Penguins are declining globally. The main suspects are climate change, fisheries, disease and pollution, but we need to understand how penguins are affected by these threats in order to mitigate them.
Penguins Lifelines is a project run by Tom Hart and is a collaboration between Oxford University, ZSL, Oceanites, Stony Brook, the British Antarctic Survey and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, researching the threats to antarctic penguins.
We are using long-term monitoring in the field and genetic analysis of penguin feathers to get a complete picture of how populations are changing. Our findings will be used to inform policy and educate the public on the impacts of climate change.
