Research: Shifting ecosystems in the Falkland Islands

Read transcript

University of Maine researchers, including Kit Hamley, explore how extinct and introduced animals affect the Falkland Islands and seek to help farmers, sheep, tussock grass, tourists and penguins coexist in light of competing interests, sea-level rise and erosion.

Hamley helped develop the 4-H Follow A ResearcherTM program at UMaine, which connects K–12 students with graduate research.

A news release on her trip to the Falkland Islands is online.
