Puffins, petrels and pests – saving seabirds across the Atlantic
An evening presentation by Dr Kirsty Swinnerton
Durrell Academy 15th August at 19.00
Kirsty will talk about seabird recovery work in the Caribbean (British Virgin Islands, Antigua and others), her own work in Puerto Rico and show similar work undertaken in the UK (Isles of Scilly, Hebrides etc) and how seabird recovery programmes might work in Jersey. She will show how the problems (pests) and recovery actions (pest management, social attraction, nest-boxes) are the same in the different regions for different seabirds and how we can exchange ideas and lessons learned across species, organisations and regions. She will also illustrate how some of the same species use both regions (e.g. Manx shearwater, Arctic tern) – and, therefore, require management actions in both regions to benefit the global population.
