    7.1 Cameras and locations

    • Currently there are over 100 cameras placed throughout the Southern Ocean and along the Antarctic Peninsula. The places where penguins nest are called rookeries. Most penguin species usually return to the same rookeries each year, but Gentoos tend to move their nests by as little as a few metres or even several kilometres from one year to the next.

    • We can’t tell you the exact location of each camera since there are too many of them. We’ve given nicknames to some sites to make it easier to discuss them.

    • Check out the list of our site nicknames:

    • Feel free to make up your own if you find a new site without a nickname.

    • Here is a map showing the first camera placement:
