The charming penguins of Antarctica
Today’s Video of the Day from the National Science Foundation describes the unique challenges of filming thousands of penguins in the extreme conditions of Antarctica.
Sophie Darlington and Julie Moniere spent a month in in a remote part of coastal Antarctica capturing footage of penguins and other wildlife for the Disneynature film Penguins.
The filmmakers noted that the Adelie penguins are not only charismatic and funny, but that they are also very resilient.
The work was made possible with the support of the National Science Foundation-managed U.S. Antarctic Program.
