Penguins as Ocean Sentinels

Penguins are marine sentinels, sounding the alarm on the declining conditions of our oceans. By paying attention to penguins we can better understand these seabirds and changes in the marine environment, such as: declines in fishery populations, pollution, the effects of global climate change, and more. The Penguin Sentinels study the biology of Magellanic and Galápagos penguins in order to expand understanding and conservation efforts of these seabirds and the marine environment.
