In 2009, a team of researchers from the British Antarctic Survey stumbled upon some interesting satellite images. Fecal stains showed signs of a huge emperor penguin colony in Antarctica. A team of researchers finally made it out to visit in Dec. 2012. They found a 9,000-strong colony of penguins on the Princess Ragnhild Coast.
Expedition leader Alain Hubert, founder of the International Polar Foundation, talks with NPR's Neal Conan talks about how the penguins reacted when they saw humans for the first time.
