About This Project
The introduction of non-native goats to an important Chilean seabird island may impact the breeding of a threatened seabird species unique to Chile, DeFilippi’s Petrel. By using automated cameras, we will compare the colony attendance and reproductive success of the two largest breeding colonies for DeFilippi's Petrel and assess goat impacts on breeding. Results will be used to inform future conservation actions.
