Adelie Penguins
CAPA DENISON 67 S

Adelie Penguins are found throughout the Antarctic.
They are highly sociable and often gather as groups.

Adelies come to the sea ice edge to feed.
These Penguins are from colonies outside Commonwealth Bay.

Sir Douglas Mawson’s base at Cape Denision, 1912
The largest rocky area in Commonwealth Bay and home to Adelie Penguins.

Cape Denision is “The Windiest Place on Earth”
From the House of the Blizzard, National Film and Sound Archive

More than 100,000 penguins were are Cape Denision a century ago
Feeding in the open water in Commonwealth Bay.

Mawson’s team often complained about the noise.

In 2011, colossal ice berg “B09B” arrived
By 2013, sea ice had extended over 60 km across Commonwealth Bay

Today, everything has changed at Cape Denision

Cape Denision is eerily quite

There’s hardly a penguin to be found

The Adelies have a 120 km journey to feed at the sea ice edge
