New footage released shows a penguin-eye view under the ice in Antarctic waters using a tiny camera mounted on the back of an Adélie penguin.

The footage was captured in Terre Adélie – ‘the land of the Adélies’ – by scientists from the French and Japanese national Antarctic programmes, who harmlessly mounted miniature cameras on the backs of Adélie penguins before they went out to sea to feed. The cameras, which weighed between 15-22 grams, were then recovered when the birds returned to their nests.

Filmed as part of a wider scientific study, the footage provides vital information about the penguin’s foraging strategies.
