Trail Cameras in Antarctica!

by Nick Hartman March 10, 2016 1 min read


Prepare to shiver! We are fortunate enough to sell to camera trap researchers all over the world.  Check out the pics below of an expedition using Reconyx trail cameras for Penguin research in Antarctica!  

Check out what he had to say about the expedition:

"Seriously awesome field season – rediscovered three breeding pairs from a supposedly extinct emperor penguin colony. It’s still basically extinct, but the fact that three can breed without a large colony is bonkers. Those are the three dots in the photo.

Then there was the day where we got caught in a storm in the weddell sea and the safest place we could find was anchored under a glacier. Way too close, but when you’re out of options it seems like a good idea at the time. We moved on pretty fast in the morning.

As if that wasn’t enough, we surveyed the Danger Islands which had never been done and found over 1 million breeding Adelies.

The ultrafires were amazing, apart from the battery compartment is ridiculous and really easy to get wrong. I’ve got to work out how to analyse that now."

 Isn't that amazing? Can you spot the 3 penguins in the photo below?
