Large Emperor Penguin Colony Discovered

6 posts in this topic

One of the largest emperor penguin colonies in Antarctica was discovered last month by a team from the International Polar Foundation's Princess Elisabeth station.

The penguin colony had previously been identified through satellite imagery by researchers from the British Antarctic Survey. The penguins themselves didn't show up very clearly, but their excrement stains on the ice did.

At nearly twice the size of Australia, Antartica I'm sure has many mysteries yet to be revealed.
