Tag! You’re it!

A number of Adelie penguins around the Ross Sea are sporting sophisticated new leg bands this year. Ornithologist David Ainley and his team attached new electronic tags to about 150 penguins to record where each penguin goes and how deeply it dives under water. The tagging project ties in with a broader effort that he’s been spearheading for 20 years, monitoring Adelie penguin populations and demographics around Ross Island.
