    Abstract

    This report is a summary of the past and current penguin research efforts by the Korean Antarctic Program in Barton Peninsula on King George Island. On top of the routine and traditional census and monitoring, new protocols are being implemented more actively such as camera based monitoring and behavior studies using different types of loggers and recorders. This will not only continue but a new project, in collaboration with other partners, is also pursued in the Ross Sea sector, which is designed to examine the prey-predator interaction and to record penguin population trends over a large area. The intent is to contribute to CCAMLR science in more committed and systematic fashion.
