Dr. Torre Stockard will share her experiences studying the world’s largest penguin species near McMurdo Station, Antarctica.  Viewers will get a glimpse into the challenges and joys of living and conducting scientific research in one of the most extreme environments on earth (for people, anyway!).   She will also reveal some of what the research team discovered about the remarkable diving ability of these fascinating birds, and adaptations that enable them not just to survive, but thrive, in their Antarctic home.

Dr. Torre Stockard's bio:
Dr. Torre Stockard earned her PhD in Marine Biology from the Scripps Institution of
Oceanography and spent several years studying the diving physiology of seals, whales, and
penguins. Her eclectic career has included work at sea, on top of the Greenland ice sheet,
six field seasons in Antarctica studying emperor penguins, and as a naturalist on Antarctic
cruises. At home in the Methow Valley, she assists with bird monitoring studies in the
summer, while in the winter she becomes nocturnal and drives snow-cats in pursuit of
creating perfect corduroy for Methow Trails. She is passionate about birding and fascinated
to learn how animals thrive in challenging environments. Torre learned the power of
storytelling when she worked at National Geographic and enjoys inspiring others to get
excited about nature. Other interests include mountain biking, skiing, and grabbing every
opportunity to explore and photograph wildlife around the world with her husband.
