We provide a brief update on the progress of our project “Establishing a CEMP Camera Network in Subarea 48.1”. The project was initiated with support from the CEMP Fund in 2014/15. The project is now running, with 53 time-lapse cameras installed throughout Subarea 48.1. Installation of cameras was conducted mainly during the 2015/16 field season. However, early installation and/or inclusion of pre-existing cameras at some sites enabled validation studies to be completed and partial network coverage of breeding chronology and success estimates for 2015/16. We were also able to develop methods for analyzing the photographic data. We expect estimates of breeding chronology and reproductive success for Adélie, gentoo, and chinstrap penguins at all camera sites throughout Subarea 48.1 to be available for the CEMP from the 2016/17 season.
