Armed with low tech gear and high minded notions that penguin populations hold the key to human survival, researcher and author Ron Naveen lays bare his 30 year love affair with the world's most pristine scientific laboratory: Antarctica. This film follows a rag tag team of field biologists to some of the harshest corners of the planet, where they track the impact of climate change and ocean health by counting penguin populations. From the tip of Argentina to the ominous Deception Island, The Penguin Counters is a treacherous, heart warming journey by a 21st century Dr. Doliitle who dreams of conserving this stunning but fragile region for future generations.
