It’s an unusual season down here this year, and unfortunately many of our science friends are unable to be on station to continue working onsite on their studies.

One long-running program is seabird monitoring – a series of mounted cameras at verious penguin colonies. The solar-powered camera setups are programmed to open the protective lens cover, take a photo, and close the cover again, several times per day during the breeding season.

Today I was able to get out to see the penguins and maintain some of the camera setups. By uploading the imagery I’m able to assist this program in their long term studies of these seabirds.
