Discover tells the story of Dee Boersma, a penguin specialist who is determined to help penguins in Patagonia. The story looks at the Magellanic Penguin Project, one of the world's largest studies of avian life. The report provides insight on penguins' living habits, and refutes some of the tourists' wrong perceptions about the aquatic birds. "Boersma's research and public opinion have convinced oil companies to alter their tankers' routes - and even to help fund her satellite-tracking research," Discover reports.
