Macaroni penguins (Eudyptes chrysolophus Brant) feed when diving during long foraging trips away from their breeding colony. They are constrained by a number of factors including their physiology, their condition, the condition of their partner as well as the condition of their chick. This talk summarizes newly discovered aspects of their foraging ecology in relation to prey availability.

Time Depth Recorders and other archival tags are increasing in their capacity, battery life and durability at the same time as getting cheaper and smaller. However, development and application of techniques to analyse these data sets lags behind our ability to collect them. This talk presents a summary of what we have achieved in the last year and work we have planned for the next two years.

This talk is part of the Ecology Lunchtime Series series.
