, discovered in 1772 by Marion Dufresne, also sounded like an attractive opportunity for sealing, but Captain Pendleton in the Union of New York searched for them without success in 1802 before travelling on to hunt seals on the Australian south coast, where he met the French explorer Baudin.
To test an alternative, researchers sent a remote-controlled rover into penguin colonies in Antarctica and the Crozet Islands
But there they were, stranded on Ile de la Possession in the Crozet Islands
, waiting for rescue.

The team conducted their experiment in 2004-2005 on the seas around the Crozet Islands
and Plateau at the northern boundary of the Southern Ocean, about 1,400 miles (2,200 kilometers) southeast of South Africa.
These results are now set to be compared with 50 wild penguins, who are being fitted with heart rate monitors when they come on land to breed in the Crozet Islands
, in the southern Indian Ocean, 1,500 miles north of the Antarctic.
France's Southern Ocean and Antarctic territories (collectivite territoriale des Terres australes et antarctiques francaises - TAAF) include the Kerguelen and Crozet Islands

In the subantarctic Crozet Islands
, killer whales (Orcinus orca) have been observed Inking up to 25% of the southern elephant seal pups (Mirounga leonina) from one beach (Guinet and louvenlin 1990).
In late 2004 and early 2005, a similar study near the Crozet Islands
southeast of South Africa further demonstrated that natural algal blooms result in only modest carbon sequestration.
1994) report that King Penguins equipped with satellite transmitters generally execute "direct" foraging trips to the south (63% of all trips), some birds engaged in "circular" trips around the Crozet Islands
, where the range was considerably shorter.
