Please do not damage vegetation.Choose a viewing position which is at least 3 m from, and does not block, the penguins' access to their burrows. Choose a site which has a dark background to camouflage yourself.Settle yourself comfortably before last light. If there are experienced personnel available, please take their advice. Remain quiet and keep movement to a minimum.Penguins have excellent vision and easily spot movement, especially if they see you outlined against the sky. Only dim torches should be used and then never toward the water or directly at the penguins.
