Conservation and Ecology of Audubon's Shearwaters and Red-billed Tropicbirds breeding in Tobago.
PIs: Patrick Jodice (USGS South Carolina Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Institute) and William Mackin (West Indian Seabird Atlas)
Collaborators: Environment Management Authority of Tobago
In 2012 we deployed 12 geolocators on each of these species during their breeding season on Little Tobago Island, Tobago. We have visited the colonies regularly since then to begin recovering these archival tags. Data are in the initial stages of review and maps will be posted soon.
The research was funded by the US Fish & Wildlife Service, USGS, and BirdsCaribbean through a grant from The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
