    In the report we describe the season activity in the Ukrainian Vernadsky Antarctic Station area on installation CEMP cameras in penguin colonies as part of the CEMP project run by USA, Argentina, Poland and Ukraine 'Establishing a CEMP Camera Network in Subarea 48.1'. In season 2015/2016 we installed nine cameras at penguine colonies at Petermann, Yalour and Galindez Islands to monitor pengiune nests for breeding success and chronology. Cameras have been installed in the middle of breeding season due to late arrival and hard ice conditions in Argentine Islands area. In time of cameras establishing in all colonies the penguine chicks were in the nests already. We expect to receive photo sequences for all breeding activity the next season in 2016/2017. The training of winterers-biologists has been provided for CEMP rules activity and for monitoring that can assist with camera data validation.
