  Meeting - 2020-09-16- A Million Penguins - Watching Penguins in the Antarctic - Join William Young at our September 2020 Meeting as he presents "A Million Penguins - Watching Penguins in the Antarctic". In 2016, Bill Young took a cruise from southern Argentina to the Falklands, South Georgia, and the Antarctic Peninsula. On the trip, he saw an estimated one million penguins from seven species. His presentation will focus on each of the species, with special emphasis on their biology and behavior and on the environmental issues affecting them. Penguins are found as far north as the Galapagos Islands, but to see large numbers of them, you need to travel to more southerly waters. Bill is a writer who lives Arlington and has traveled to all seven continents to observe birds and wildlife. ln 2014, his book the Fascination of Birds: From the Albatross to the Yellowthroat was published by Dover Publications. The book contains 99 essays which look at the relationship between birds and a broad range of subjects, including biology , ecology, literature, music, history, linguistics, politics, sports, entertainment, and other areas. His natural history videos on his YouTube channel have had over a half million viess. He has been honored by having a species of snail-killing fly named after him -- Dictya youngi.
