Come and join Jen Mannas as she talks about her work with the United States Antarctic Program. She will present the history of research in Antarctica, the decline of the Adelie penguin, and describe what it’s like living at 70 degrees south. Numerous breathtaking photos of the Antarctic landscape, mammals, and seabirds taken by Jen will of course be included in the presentation.

About the Speaker

Jen Mannas currently works as the Naturalist and Wildlife Release Manager at the Progressive Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) in Lynnwood, WA. She has an extensive and diverse wildlife background, which has included everything from working with California condors to Mexican wolves. Some of Jen’s most notable experience comes from her work in Antarctica where she conducted her Masters research on Weddell seal populations. After finishing her Masters, she continued her passion for research in Antarctica by studying three species of penguins, giant petrels, blue-eyed shags, skuas, and gulls. Please join us to see some amazing pictures, learn a little about Antarctic research, and what life is like in Antarctica!
