Where is this vulnerable Indian Ocean seabird feeding? Using micro-GPS to track seabirds in the Indian Ocean
Thankyou all! Please continue as it all helps!
I have studied the Lesser Noddy at the Houtman Abrolhos, Western Australia for 25 years. New micro-GPS technology provides a unique chance to track this vulnerable seabird at sea. Lesser Noddies weigh 100g, nest on 3 islands, and their breeding season is shifting due to global warming. Where do they feed? How will this change with a warming Indian Ocean? Using GPS we hope to identify and conserve their foraging grounds.
