As part of the Harpur Science Forum Lecture series, we are delighted to welcome Old Bedfordian Dr Tom Hart, British Antarctic Survey and Department of Zoology, Oxford University, who will talk on ‘Penguins and Life in the Antarctic’.
The research involved in investigating, exploring and documenting the history, wildlife and natural resources of the Polar Regions takes a massive amount of work for experts in all fields. Dr Hart is the head of Penguin Lifelines, and is working on recognizing the threats to penguins and other Southern Ocean wildlife. “This involves two main strands; genetics of old and current populations plus really detailed monitoring of current populations using cameras,” he explains.
Pupils do not need to be accompanied. However, staff are most welcome to attend the lecture, if it is of interest.
