If Antarctic animals could talk, what would they say?
Hear stories from scientists who have been to the Antarctic and witnessed animals in the wild. Discover the challenges faced by Elephant Seals as they swim the Southern Ocean searching for food. Uncover the amazing role of Krill in the polar regions and find out what they’re telling us about the changing climate.
Understanding the challenges faced by Antarctic animals is central to improving our knowledge of the ocean’s role in climate change, and for understanding the impact that change is having on Earth. Join our experts to find out what the cool-climate creatures would tell us, if they could.
