Fred Elser First Sunday Science: March of the Fossil Penguins


Sunday, February 2, 2:00 – 3:00 PM; Family activities from 1:30 – 3:30 PM.


@ the Bruce Museum Seaside Center at Greenwich Point


Penguins have thrived in the southern oceans since the dawn of the Cenozoic Era, more than 60 million years ago. In the past few years, dozens of spectacular new fossils have shed light on the early part of their evolutionary history and revealed a new whole new cast of characters who preceded today's adorable aquatic denizens.


Dr. Daniel Ksepka's talk, “March of the Fossil Penguins”, will examine the fossil record of Earth's most completely aquatic birds. Drawing on his research trips from South America and New Zealand, Dr. Ksepka will explore how avian paleontologists are piecing together how the penguins evolved, how they grew to such enormous sizes, and even the colors of their feathers.
