We have been tracking the at-sea distribution of seabirds for over a decade. Our work focuses primarily on Laysan Albatrosses and Wedge-tailed Shearwaters, but has also included Red-tailed Tropicbirds, Red-footed and Brown Boobies. Our goal is to learn not only more about the pelagic habitat use of this group of birds, but also to inform managers about potential conflicts with offshore wind energy projects.
Some results from previous tracking on Laysan Albatross can be downloaded here and seen below. Purple colors are Laysan Albatross tracked from Kure Atoll; Pink are from Kaena Point.
