New database for diving animal records

Hi everyone,

Would just like to point your attention to a new database that's just been released. The Penguiness book of dive records!

http://www.penguiness.net/

This web application is an educational and scientific data-finding tool aimed at facilitating the search for published dive data on air-breathing species. Currently, the database hosts records for just over 400 species (and counting!).

Have you ever wondered if Emperor penguins can dive deeper than the Empire State building is tall?? If so, check out our "dive comparison" web app.

There are a plethora of ways to explore Penguiness! If you have questions, please fill in our handy contact form.

More importantly, if you have published dive records you would like to share, please head to our contribution section and fill in the form.

Cheers everyone,

Grant Humphries, Yan Ropert-Coudert, Akiko Kato and Alex Robbins
