Scientists carrying out research on Robben Island are using an automatic recognition system that records patterns of spots on the chests of adult penguins by digital photography. The technique is still being tested and refined, but eventually it may be possible to monitor remotely more than 90 percent of the African penguins (Spheniscus demersus) on the island. This automated system will help to eliminate the need to band penguins, except for specific purposes such as measuring chick survival rates, when flipper bands will still need to be used.
