Penguin Counters, The


 
 

Description

Armed with low-tech gear and high-minded notions that penguin populations hold the key to human survival, Ron Naveen lays bare his 30+ year love affair with the world's most pristine scientific laboratory: Antarctica. The Penguin Counters follows Ron and his ragtag team of field biologists to one of the harshest corners of the planet, where they track the impact of climate change and ocean health by counting penguin populations.

Directed and produced by Peter Getzels and Harriet Gordon, the film takes us from the tip of Argentina to the ominous Deception Island on a treacherous yet heartwarming journey by a 21st century Dr. Doolittle who dreams of conserving this stunning but fragile region for future generations.
