Jonathan Handley, a student of the Nelsen Mandela Metropolitan University, South Africa, visited the Falklands from 2011 – 2013 to study the diet and foraging ecology of gentoo penguins, his work supported by Falklands Conservation. Jonathan attached video cameras to the backs of the penguins as part of the foraging study, and great footage of gentoos hunting out at sea was gained, filmed by the penguins themselves! This footage included an incident of kleptoparasitism – one penguin stealing a catch from another, previously unknown behaviour for gentoos.
Jonathan has published a paper outlining his findings, and an article is featured in the New Scientist!
