Dear fellow seabird biologists,
We seek your expertise! Led by Dr. Dena Spatz, we are collating the methods and outcomes involved in seabird social attraction and translocation operations to promote seabird recovery worldwide. The information will be consolidated into an online tool, The Seabird Restoration Database, and will assist knowledge transfer among practitioners seeking to use active seabird restoration tools to recover seabird populations. The final product will be similar to the Database of Island Invasive Species Eradications.
You can choose to contribute to this effort in multiple ways
