Dyan deNapoli – The Penguin Lady

A former Senior Penguin Aquarist at Boston’s prestigous New England Aquarium, Dyan deNapoli has taken her passion for penguins on the road as The Penguin Lady. Praised as a passionate and inspiring speaker, Dyan truly loves sharing her knowledge and enthusiasm for penguins with audiences of all ages. Frequently sought after for her penguin expertise, she has appeared on numerous television and radio shows worldwide, including CNN’s Situation Room, the BBC, CBC-Radio Canada and Sierra Club Radio. Her TEDx talk about the world’s largest animal rescue has been viewed by 250,000 people worldwide at www.TED.com. (http://www.ted.com/talks/dyan_denapoli_the_great_penguin_rescue.html)

Her award-winning book, THE GREAT PENGUIN RESCUE, is a compelling first-person account of the groundbreaking rescue of 40,000 penguins from an oil spill in South Africa. Dyan served as a rehabilitation supervisor during this historic event, which still stands as the largest and most successful animal rescue ever undertaken. Her book was a Silver Award Winner in the 2011 Nautilus Book Awards, was selected as a “Must-Read” Book in the 2011 Massachusetts Book Awards, and was named “One of the best sci-tech books of 2010” by Library Journal.

Dyan is available for author visits, or for general presentations about penguin biology, behavior and conservation. With penguin populations in rapid decline, her mission is to raise awareness and funding to protect these engaging seabirds – to that end, she donates 20% of the proceeds from her book and from every appearance to penguin rescue, research and conservation groups.
