New Zealand is considered the seabird capital of the world, and WMIL have a long association with seabird research. Working on a wide range of species from gulls to shags and petrels to albatross, our staff are some of New Zealand’s leading authorities on several seabird species. Utilising the most up to date tools we have conducted research on a range aspects of seabird ecology, including adult and juvenile survival, breeding productivity, population census, assessing population trends, and dive-depth, satellite, GPS and geo-locator tracking. Projects are both short and long-term, such as our black petrel/takoketai project on Great Barrier Island/Aotea which has been ongoing since 1995. This work is usually geared toward providing conservation advice for threatened species. WMIL can provide expert help with your seabird research needs.
