Little Auks through the ages

In Arctic, an interdisciplinary team has been working at a spectacular East Greenland site for the past 12 years. The researchers focused on little auks, a tiny seabird which forage by the million in the Greenland Sea. Using miniature electronic trackers, they follow the birds amongst sea-ice and glaciers, where animals face rising temperatures and pollutant levels. To better understand ecological dynamics, the scientists reconstruct their presence over the last millennia.

I have been working as a biologist and ornithologist for various research programs on many bird species in subantarctic islands, Groenland, South Africa and New Caledonia. After more than 10 years in the research, I made a career-changer in 2016. I am an independent French film-maker specialized in science education and nature conservation in general.
