"Oceanites' longstanding credibility promotes a better understanding of the singular issue of our time — adaptation — because Antarctica and its penguins are incubators foretelling our planet's future," said Oceanites founder and principal, Ron Naveen (https://oceanites.org/
Oceanites uses penguin population trends to focus public attention on climate change 'winners' and 'losers' and whether penguins – and humans can adapt to a warming future.
"Climate change is real and the most important challenge facing mankind today. We just want more people to get outside and smell the guano and then to become a part of the conversation and solution," said Naveen.
Following are observations Oceanites has tracked over 1, 713 site visits at 223 data collection stations over 22 seasons in Antarctica:
· Over the past 60 years winter temperatures in Antarctica, the coldest and windiest place on Earth, have risen by 9* F (5*C);
· Gentoo Penguin populations seem to be increasing and increasing their range southward;
· Adélie and Chinstrap Penguin populations seem to be on the decline.
