On #WorldAlbatrossDay I like to reflect on just how amazingly beautiful these birds are. Just look at them. Perfection.
SAVE THE DATE! 📆#WorldKrillDayy is on 11th Aug 🦐 Together, we'll celebrate these small creatures, basis of th#Antarcticic diet for most marine mammals and seabirds, includin#penguinsns and the enormous blue whale. Learn more about krillasoc.org/learn/life-in-…T1E

YEAH ALEX! Microplastics found in fresh Antarctic snow - BBC News ⁦@Alex_Aves1bbc.com/news/science-e…
Could pipefish and penguins help us figure out how species adapt to climate change? UC scientist Dr @sarahpf19 aims to find out. @UCNZscience bit.ly/3aDqRQg #RevitalizeTheOcean

@1NewsNZ highlights expert reaction from ESR's Dr Olga Pantos to a study led by @UCNZ researchers, which found microplastics in Antarctic snow. Check out the full story here for more reaction from Olga 1news.co.nz/2022/06/08/mic…

“This study adds to the growing body of literature regarding #microplastics as a ubiquitous airborne pollutant and establishes their presence in #Antarctica.” Both from local bases and airborne pollution. Really interesting linking to polar kit... tc.copernicus.org/articles/16/21…

Of course, @Alex_Aves1 has gone on to finish her Master's in Antarctic Studies and is now a @UCNZ PhD student with the indefatigable @LauraRevellNZ - we are lucky to have this excellent research happening right here in NZ.
Very proud of @Alex_Aves1 for rocking it on @Breakfaston1 📺 with@LauraRevellNZZ talking about her incredibly important research which found airborne microplastics in Antarctica 🇦🇶 using samples collected duri#UCPCAS2019019 wi@GatewayAntarct1cTFf

Friends, this was Alex's Antarctic field project. Like, not even a master's or PhD, this was the field project she took up as part of @UCNZ PCAS course. AND LOOK WHAT SHE DID WITH IT! She discovered microplastics deposited in snow, in Antarctica. A world first. twitter.com/Alex_Aves1/sta…
Congratulations @Alex_Aves1 @LauraRevellNZ and team! So happy to have played a small part in this excellent work. Antarctica pristine no more as microplastics discovered in snow at bottom of the world stuff.co.nz/environment/12…

UC PhD candidate Alexa Hasselman is using citizen science web platform @the_zooniverse to understand the impact killer whales have on endangered Stellar sea lions, “citizen science can play a key role in monitoring endangered species.” #RevitalizeTheOcean bit.ly/38WgwPi

I am a marine biologist and PhD student with @UCNZ and @NOAA, studying the potential impact of killer whale predation on Steller sea lions. A portion of my project is working on our @the_zooniverse citizen science project @kwcount. Go check us out !

Black Birders Week starts tomorrow! That means my posts are being given over to the organizers and birders from @BlackAFinSTEM and #Blackbirdersweek. All week will be portraits I have drawn with bios, statements, and links to the work, birding events, and talks they are doing.

SCAR conferences are a brilliant mix of all types of polar science and humanities & a great way to meet colleagues from around the world. This year it is online only and very inexpensive, so I recommend it, especially for #EarlyCareerResearchers! @Polar_Research @UKPolarNetwork twitter.com/SCAR_Tweets/st…

Good to see that our work gets some attention. Yellow-eyed penguins/hoiho are facing extinction on the New Zealand mainland and our data indicates that fisheries interactions play a major role in the species' demise. But... twitter.com/thekermadecs/s…

Still time to submit your abstract for @SCAR_Tweets SCAR 2022 Open Science Conference: scar2022.org/588-2/ I recommend our @EGBAMM_SCAR session 'Birds and marine mammals' 😉O

*correcting here, too, it was 5,000 little penguins, as in the species, "little penguins", not baby penguins
Although tied to land for breeding and moulting, little penguins spend 80% of their time in the ocean. Here’s a great story map by @HarleySchinagl @rmcint16 @PengChiara on how warming oceans impact little penguins (and seals) storymaps.arcgis.com/stories/d69b9e…

Your feel good news story for the day - a massive 5219 penguins crossing the Parade beach in May! Unprecedented, but in a good way. abc.net.au/news/2022-05-0…

Hi folks, correction: it was 5,000 little penguins. “Little” as in the species, not as in the age of the birds. This is still incredibly cool! twitter.com/drmichellelaru…

It will never not be funny Via WildGreenMemes
I already know how some folks did @WolfgangRack @LauraRevellNZ @ElissaZCameron (super duper congrats, team) but how about @astrokiwi @_VanessaMorris_ @SAKessans @EmzLCarroll @MMEG_UoA and others?
I shall start, I got rejected and told @AdrianMcNZ that it's now a vendetta for me
Hello to everyone who put in a Marsden, could you please feel free to tell me if you were rejected so I can celebrate your attempt or if you got through to round 2 so I can celebrate your achievement OK GO
WELL DONE AND CONGRATULATIONS @sciencewithtyus It’s an honor to have worked alongside you researching one big cat species and I can’t wait to see what your bright future has in store. So happy for you!!!
I’m not going to give anymore of the book away because you should really buy a copy. Seriously. If you know a curious kiddo who wants to know what the heck lions, tigers, and panthers get up to all day, this is the book for you!!!
And as a person who loves both maps and large cats, this was my favorite spread by far. Just look at it. SO INFORMATIVE AND INTERESTING. I couldn’t love this more. Illustrator, Chaaya Prabat, did such a great job!!
