I've always been fascinated by the idea of a penguinologist, but I told myself no such thing exists. Well, guess what, people. It exists. I have proof!
Yeah, yeah.. maybe he's the only penguinologist ever.. but STILL! Photo evidence, guys. Can't beat it.
Spotlight! Drum roll! Ready.. and..
IN THE SPOTLIGHT - TOM HART
Penguinologist Tom Hart loves penguins and is working hard to develop conservation strategies for them. So when he got the opportunity to visit an emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) colony with ANI last year he jumped at the chance. We caught up with Tom recently to ask him about that experience and about his ongoing research.
