Penguins, plants, and people! Crowd-funded research in the Falkland Islands

Description:

Please take the time to check out our crowd funding campaign that is over 50% funded. We have 8 days left to raise the rest, or we get none of the funding!

The Falklands Islands are a biodiversity hot spot in the South Atlantic, but are threatened by climate and land use change. To protect penguins, marine mammals, and other species, we need to better understand how the islands have responded to past periods of rapid climate change.

Funds raised through this campaign will help us take peat cores, to establish a climate and ecological history for the Falkland Islands spanning the last 20,000 years.
