Join Dr Phil Trathan of the British Antarctic Survey as he discusses previously unknown aspects of penguin behaviour and ecology

In this talk Phil Tranthan from British Antarctic Survey explores how new technology has helped reveal different elements of penguin behaviour and ecology, much of this previously unknown. Satellite remote sensing has now provided revised information about the breeding, distribution and population sizes of various different penguin species, so that we now know – for example - that there are 54 colonies of emperors with a breeding population of more than 238,000 pairs; almost twice that previously recognised. Use of new technology has been vital in re-assessing the threat status of all different penguin species.
