Recent activity

Welcome to is dedicated to the facilitation of communication and data sharing between seabird scientists around the world. Our initiative began in 2007 and has been supported by major global seabird organizations in all corners of the globe.

The World Seabird Union would like to thank the many volunteers who made the 4th World Seabird Twitter Conference such a success. We are also grateful for the support provided to these volunteers by their employers or labs, and in the case of those who are self-employed their willingness to donate their time to the TC and it success. On behalf of the Board and our Member Societies, thank you!!

Did you know that the WSU has a conservation committee?

When issues arise in specific areas that warrant responses to protect or enhance seabird outcomes the regional group would provide the first response on such issues. If the issue is considered significant to warrant a stronger level of support, where international implications are expected from the lack of conservation of a species or its habitat, then the WSU may be approached to provide further ‘moral’ support to the issue.
