WGF members and career biologists Karen Mesmer and Robert Rolley describe their recent adventure to the Falklands, South Georgia Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula as they kayak among whales, icebergs, and more penguins than Karen could count.

 

Robert and Karen provided these links to their Youtube videos to show more of their trip.

Webinar participants had questions about penguins and the sounds they make. Robert reports that the best penguin vocalizations are in Chapter 4 of his recordings when at the Gentoo colony on Danco Island.  He says “Capturing good sound is a skill I am still working on.”
