Evaluating the translocation of albatross chicks as a mechanism for establishing a new breeding colony and determining albatross habitat associations in the North Pacific


November 2007 - November 2009


1) Determine the efficacy of chick translocation as a management technique; 2) Address multi-scale questions of habitat use (at the coarse scale, researchers will determine foraging patterns and habitat use of breeding birds and fine scale analyses will include direct observations of short-tailed albatross aggregations in known habitat "hot spots" (Piatt et al. 2006) in the North Pacific, including the Bering Sea).
