More than half of the world’s 18 species of penguin are threatened with extinction, but Borboroglu is turning things around. Using an approach that combines science, management and education, he works to conserve penguins across the southern hemisphere. Over the past 29 years, his work has brought together more than 125 organisations and benefited 1.2 million penguins in six countries. Photograph: 2018 Whitley Award
