Penguin spotting for science

PenguinsComputers are notoriously bad at recognising complex objects in photographs.  You are much better!  That is why scientists studying penguins using time-lapse photography are asking for people like you to identify penguins in photographs to help us better understand their lives.

Have a go today on the PenguinWatch website.

By clicking on penguins and their eggs in a series of photographs, you can help forward cutting edge research.  Concentrating on something entirely different like this is also a proven way to refresh your concentration and help you study better and more happily.
