Meet the people who stand between the world’s last wild populations of African penguins and extinction. Over the past century, the seabird’s population has dropped almost 95 percent. Near Stoney Point on South Africa’s Western Cape, Cuan McGeorge and his colleagues monitor the breeding colony for injured birds. Every bird they successfully save bolsters the species’ potential for the future.
Founded in 2000, SCINEMA is the largest science film festival in the southern hemisphere celebrating the power of moving image to explain the wonders of science.
It combines SCINEMA International Science Film Festival and SCINEMA Community Program.
The Festival premieres across Australia in June each year and showcases the best science film from around the world.
SCINEMA Community Program takes place in Australia during National Science Week in August.
