I’m very excited to share news that the KICKSTARTER campaign for THE PENGUIN COUNTERS film about Oceanites and the Antarctic Site Inventory has just launched!

Here’s the link:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1871897047/the-penguin-counters-documentary-film

Harriet, Peter, and their entire team at Getzels Gordon Productions have done an amazing job getting the KICKSTARTER campaign going, the film clip you’ll see is a harbinger of the over-the-top, fabulous footage they’ll be using, and I’d be enormously grateful for your spreading the word about the campaign as widely and vigorously as you can.

The campaign seeks funding for a festival-ready cut of the film, which, ultimately, is intended for broadcast worldwide.

Importantly, ALL donations count – small, medium, or large – and obviously, all of us connected with the film hope you’ll be able to assist, as possible. Thanks!

Also, please check out the official website for THE PENGUIN COUNTERS:

Once again, really appreciate your help moving this campaign forward.

More to come, all best

Ron Naveen, principal investigator of the Antarctic Site Inventory, explains how the project is monitoring and analyzing changes in the vastly warming, Antarctic Peninsula ecosystem.
