LOOK AT PHO­TOS: Pen­guins are at the top of the food chain in Antarc­tica, so even mi­nor pop­u­la­tion changes have a huge im­pact on the en­tire ecosys­tem. There are not many bird-watch­ers on the freez­ing cold con­ti­nent, so sci­en­tists know very lit­tle about their num­bers. A team of in­ter­na­tional sci­en­tists aim to change that via the Pen­guin Watch cit­i­zen science project. They have in­stalled cam­eras on more than 100 de­serted lo­ca­tions with five dif­fer­ent pen­guin species. The cam­eras have taken more than six mil­lion pho­tos so far. You must count the num­ber of adult pen­guins, ba­bies, and eggs.

Via a cam­era, you walk about count­ing pen­guins in Antarc­tica. Cam­era
