Picking up the calling of the ATCM XXXIV to the Treaty Parties to intensify their efforts in using remote sensing techniques for improved monitoring of environment and climate changes in the Antarctic, Germany currently carries out a feasibility study on penguin monitoring using such techniques. Additionally, CEP representatives and scientists discuss on an informal level the need and the general possibilities of a penguin monitoring in the Antarctic Treaty area based on remote sensing techniques. In order to stimulate and formalize this discussion, Germany proposes to open an Intersessional Contact Group (ICG) on penguin monitoring via remote sensing on the CEP Discussion Forum on the Secretariat website and invites CCAMLR to participate in this process.
