The man who spies on penguins for science

By Emily Himes

Tom Hart, an enthusiastic penguinologist, is a junior fellow at the University of Oxford. He is marking pictures of penguins taken in the southern polar region. He is contributing to Zooniverse, an online crowdsourcing science program, along with almost a million other scientists. Hart began Penguin Lifelines, which is a “collaborative international project researching the threats faced by Antarctic penguins.” He put timelapse cameras all around Antarctica so he could be fully dedicated to watching the penguins 24/7.
