Emperors of the Ice

Emperors of the Ice
Employing the Crittercam technology, researchers Jerry Kooyman and Paul Ponganis follow the emperor penguins and see the world from their perspective. They watch them search for food, rear their young and dodge predatory leopard seals. This and the gathering of environmental data helps the researchers understand these amazing animals and get a sense of their future as the balance of life in the Antarctic continues to change.
