Antarctic Site Inventory

The ASI is the only non-governmental science project working in Antarctica and the only project monitoring both penguin and seabird population changes throughout the entirety of the vastly warming Antarctic Peninsula. Over more than 25 seasons, Oceanites’ Antarctic Site Inventory has made more than 2,100 site visits and collected data at more than 235 locations. The changes we’ve been tracking are significant — gentoo penguins increasing their numbers and extending their range southward, while Adélie and chinstrap numbers are in decline across the region.
