Satellite tracking of Emperor penguin fledglingsEntry ID: IMOS_11068
Abstract: As seabirds emperor penguins spent a large proportion of their lives at sea. For food they depend entirely on marine resources. Young penguins rarely return to their natal colonies after their first year. Satellite tracking will give us insights into where foraging areas may be that are important for these birds. This tracking work is part of a multi-species study funded by the Integrated Marine Observation System (IMOS).
Purpose: To determine the at-sea distribution of fledgling emperor penguins and to examine to which extent their foraging range may overlap with that of other species.
