Developing Non-Invasive Methods to Monitor Burrow-nesting Seabird Populations

Duration

February 2014 - January 2017

Narrative

We will develop, test, and validate multiple new, efficient, and minimally invasive techniques to monitor populations of a representative burrow-nesting seabird, Leach's Storm-petrel, and to generate and compare new indices to traditional methods of determining burrow occupancy. Specifically, we will use upward viewing remote cameras and acoustic recorders to generate indices of activity (abundance) within plots where concurrent traditional surveys of audio playback, burrow camera, and grubbing will also occur.
