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.

Blast off!
