We present a design for a simple, inexpensive leg band for mounting GLS tags on penguins. It causes a low level of injury and can be made from materials and tools that are readily available. We provide information on captive and field trials and outline deployment strategies that improve recovery rates. This device should facilitate further studies of penguin winter movements using geolocation.
