A tourist, a camera and a good eye may just be the trick to saving the endangered Galapagos penguins.

Tourists and the photographs they take can provide valuable information about the health of the Galapagos penguins and their surrounding environment. From a single shot, UW researchers can determine whether a penguin is breeding, molting or migrating, as well as the bird's age, health status and other information.
