As climate change has taken effect in Antarctica, scientists have been able to watch two species of penguins — Gentoos and Adelies — respond in real time. Senior Science Editor at The Cornell Lab of Ornithology Hugh Powell has traveled to Antarctica on three expeditions and followed scientists as they observed the changes to some of the largest and smallest Adelie Penguin colonies in the world. In this virtual lecture, Powell will explore what Antarctic penguins can tell us about human response to climate change and share the splendor of Antarctica and its birds through stunning images by nature photographer Chris Linder.
This event is co-hosted by the Essex County Ornithological Club. A brief meeting of the club will be held from 7:30-7:45 pm. All are welcome to attend!
