To an untrained eye, the imperial cormorants that cover the shore of a Patagonian beach all look alike—but one stands out. Because this sea bird has a camera mounted on its back. So when the cormorant dives into the water, we get a birds-eye view as it travels 150 feet in about 40 seconds and then seeks out food on the ocean floor. The deep-diving cormorant is one of hundreds that the Wildlife Conservation Society tracks to ensure that the birds have places to live where they can be protected—and well fed.
