March of the Fossil Penguins

Fossil penguin discoveries and research

March of the Fossil Penguins is heading south!

with 2 comments

This week, March of the Fossil Penguins is heading to New Zealand.  I will be traveling to search for fossil penguins and work on specimens in the Otago Museum with Dr. R. Ewan Fordyce.  There will be some live updates over the next three weeks as our team works to shed more light on penguin evolution on the South Island.

A Yellow-Eyed Penguin, native of New Zealand. Penguins have been stomping (and swimming) around the South Island for more than 60 million years.

  2. Have fun. The Otago geo lab is tight but quaint.

    Say hi to Ewan and Andrew (if he is still there).
