    About This Project

    Seabird populations are declining. Seabirds face a number of threats in marine and terrestrial habitats. Research elsewhere has identified threats as habitat disturbance including those caused by humans, and introduced predators. Also, global issues such as climate change negatively influences ocean productivity where colonies are found. Here, I will determine the cause of seabird decline by assessing human and invasive predation on Grenadine Seabirds.
