During this trip, we will search for some South Island penguins in a few of the richest fossil sites worldwide. It takes a lot of tools and supplies. Here, in early morning chill, the equipment is laid out. Wish us luck!
This blog details fossil discoveries and research on the fascinating Sphenisciformes. The aim is to introduce the cast of fossil species (50 and counting), explore the evolutionary history of penguin bones, feathers and ecology, and explain how scientists learn about life in the past.
