Dyan deNapoli, Penguin Expert & Author, Former Senior Penguin Aquarist, New England Aquarium
When a threatened species found itself directly in the path of a devastating oil spill, the race was on to mount the world’s largest animal rescue effort. Join us as penguin expert Dyan deNapoli gives a riveting personal account of this event, in which thousands of international volunteers worked for months to save 40,000 penguins on the coast of South Africa. As a leader in the effort, deNapoli helped ensure that nearly all of the penguins were successfully rehabilitated and returned to the wild.
