Shirley, R. (Richard) ; Neary, T. (Time)


Richard Shirley discusses penguin tracking in South Africa, and how tracking mechanisms support research on feeding, breeding and migration patterns. Also discussed are how the miniturisation of tracking devices has dramatically improved information gathering, especially for tracking young birds and breeding populations. This information feeds into the Departmental of Environmental Affairs and the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries for national planning purposes.
