What’s Threatening Magellanic Penguins?

Magellanic Penguins
Science News by NewsLook

Over the past two decades the Magellanic penguin population in Argentina has dropped by 22 percent. To discover what is threatening the population, National Geographic grantee Dee Boersma uses state-of-the-art technology to count the penguins and monitor their movements between the beach and the sea as they forage for food. Thanks to Boersma’s research, penguin colonies and the coastal habitat they share with other species are better protected. Photo Credit: venomgfx via Flickr.
