Monitoring penguins 1.


The Nga Motu Marine Reserve Society is monitoring 'artificial penguin burrows'. We have several wooden and concrete burrows. Some of the wooden ones have soil and plants growing on top, which appear to provide a more equitable environment..

We are using wireless monitoring equipment to measure temperature and light levels, and hope to be able to compare the different environments. The equipment also follows the coming-and-goings of the burrow occupents.

This image shows the 'Bright Sparks' electronics being prepared.
