Seabird research in the Western Atlantic, Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico

Our team is comprised of agency and academic scientists as well as graduate students. We collaborate on a range of research and conservation projects focused on seabird ecology. Our research is supported by federal and state agencies as well as foundations.

Our research focuses on a variety of nearshore and pelagic marine birds that breed in the western Atlantic including Brown PelicanBlack-capped Petrel, Black SkimmerAudubon's ShearwaterMagnificent FrigatebirdMasked BoobyRed-billed and White-tailed Tropicbird, Royal and Least Terns and Laughing Gulls.

We collaborate on research projects in a variety of locations and countries throughout the Western Atlantic including South Carolina, U.S. states along the Gulf of Mexico, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, St. Eustatius, Tobago, British Virgin Islands, Jamaica, and Mexico. 

The Atlantic Seabird Web page is under construction. The site is being developed by Patrick Jodice and Yvan Satgé at the South Carolina Cooperative Fish & Wildlife Research Unit located at Clemson University (science guys, not web guys!).
