Penguinessbook is online

This superb website gives you access to a scientific database where you will find official records of dive depth and duration for most diving species of vertebrates. This project was initiated to answer the questions regularly asked by school teachers, educators, journalists, scientists: “How deep can animals dive?”. Such information is compiled here, using references from scientific articles from peer-reviewed journals, ensuring that these values are the most reliable and current estimates.
The data content was compiled and edited by Yan Ropert-Coudert, the website was developed by Alexandre Martin, and is hosted by SCAR-MarBIN (Julien Cigar and Nabil Youdjou).

Enjoy!
