#RaspberryPi used for monitoring penguins in Antartica

Way back in September last year, I covered a story on Cambridge Consultants, the Zoological Society of London, and their use of the Raspberry Pi in conservation and preservation in Kenya. Since January this year, they have used the same equipment, known as Instant Wild, to monitor penguins in Antarctica. Basically, the Pi is used to send photos and data back from the unit (pictured above) via an Iridium (satellite) uplink. You can read a lot more about the project over on Cnet.com.
