Dr. Dee Boersma—the Wadsworth Endowed Chair in Conservation Science in the University of Washington’s department, and who has been referred to as the “Jane Goodall of Penguins”—discusses the circumstances that precipitated her studying Galapagos penguins, which she’s been doing for the ensuing 40 years. She addresses the scientific importance of such a long-term study, noting the specific shifts reflected through The Penguin Project in the environment on the Galapagos and other locales—underscoring the impact of climate change. www.penguinsentinels.org/
