Happy Feet Penguin Tracking
September 5, 2011 by USA Post
Happy Feet Penguin Tracking, Whichever direction you anything, Happy Feet can do no wrong, experts say. There was concern among observers online yesterday that the rebel emperor penguin appeared to be back north after his release, rather than home to the Antarctic.
But Te Papa curator Colin Miskelly vertebrates warned people watching the movements of penguins through a tracking device not panics if the tracking map suggest heading in the wrong direction.
“It’s not a GPS. It is a satellite tracker and the error is important,” he said. “When you see a zig-zag, you can not give an accurate solution.”
There was no point reading too much into the data until a pattern emerged after several days, Dr Miskelly said.
Happy Feet was released in waters about 285 feet deep near Campbell Island on Sunday. He is the first emperor released into the wild with a tracking device. Massey University associate professor John C**krem, who has studied penguins in Antarctica, said young people did not return to the Antarctic to breed until they were about five years.
Happy Feet could swim in the ocean, until then – despite his feathers fall tracker once you move later this year.
Is believed to be aged between one and five years, despite its age, has been the subject of debate. “If the bird is only two or three, it might take a year or two before, of course, goes back to the continent [Antarctica],” said Dr. C**krem.
