Webinar: New methods for tracking NZ seabirds

Start date
End date
Campbell Albatross and Chick

New Zealand waters support the greatest diversity of seabirds on Earth, including rare and endangered species, such as albatrosses, petrels and shearwaters. It is critical that we know the number of birds, where they live and their migration patterns.

Using boats to survey bird populations and collect detailed data about seabird distributions is extremely expensive. In this webinar Dr David Thompson will present new research on more cost effective methods for monitoring New Zealand seabirds.

This webinar is open to everyone but will be of interest to people working in marine conservation, in fisheries, or related science and policy fields.
