Seabird foraging behaviour, habitat preferences and implications for fishery bycatch mitigation
My PhD project focuses on determining the environmental and ecological processes driving the differential habitat use of closely-related albatross and petrel species (and in particular of juvenile life-stages), and investigating the implications of these trends for conservation. This project is a collaboration between BAS, the University of Cambridge, the Government of South Georgia and the South Sandwhich Islands and the RSPB.
