About This Project
Instituto de Ecología, A. C.
Seven years of intense field monitoring and automated recordings, showed us which factors negatively impact the demography and conservation of Townsend´s Shearwater. Light pollution is a major threat. Fortunately, the Mexican Navy is helping us install new lights on Socorro Island to minimize the number of accidental landings and deadly collisions. Also, we will monitor the efficiency of our efforts to save the species in subsequent years .
