Penguin Watch

Want to help scientists who are studying Penguins in the coldest parts of the world? You can do so from the comfort of your home by annotating their images of wildlife in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean.

What is Virtual Volunteering?
Becoming a ‘virtual volunteer’ is a way you can still make a difference, even if you can’t leave your home. You can help with important tasks online or by phone.

The project, led by ‘penguinologist’ Dr Tom Hart, is part of broader penguin health research, which needs volunteers to count penguins in thousands of photographs taken by automated cameras monitoring colonies for Australian Antarctic Division and UK scientists.
