TANAMI (Tracking Active Galactic Nuclei with Austral Milliarcsecond Interferometry) is a program to image and monitor the parsec-scale structures of relativistic jets in active galactic nuclei (AGN) of the Southern Hemisphere with the LBA. Complementary to existing programs in the Northern Hemisphere (e.g., MOJAVE), TANAMI is tracking the jets of sources south of -30 degrees declination with milliarcsecond resolution at 8.4GHz and 22GHz. TANAMI observations are being conducted every two months which started in November 2007 providing dense sampling of fast superluminal moving jet features. Currently, TANAMI is monitoring about 80 jets (most of them blazars) including many sources found by Fermi to be flaring at gamma-rays.
