About This Project

Wintering habitats of California least terns remain unknown, despite having terns being listed as endangered since 1970. Scientists believe that they migrate to Mexico, Central America, and perhaps as far as South America! Using novel GPS tags, our research will help unravel their unknown distribution, determine where these terns are wintering, and their migration routes. Having this knowledge will mean huge gains for the long-term management and future recovery of this endangered seabird.

Blast off!
