The Penguin Counters

2017 • Feature Film • Released

Nature, Documentary

Armed with low-tech gear and high-minded notions that penguin populations may hold the key to human survival, Ron Naveen lays bare his 30 year love affair with the world's most pristine scientific laboratory: Antarctica. He and his ragtag team of field-biologists embark on a journey to some of the harshest corners of the planet, where they track the impact of climate change and ocean health on penguin populations - one nest at a time. But penguins aren't the only stars. During the fifteen-day voyage to the rookeries, Ron discovers that the ashes of Ernest Shackleton's best friend and colleague - Frank Wild - are on board his ship, along with descendants of both the Wilds and Shackletons.
