Looking for a geolocator

Once again the team had the opportunity to help our fellow researchers of seabirds, Maria Magalhães and Cristina Perry Nava, from the Oceanographic and Fisheries Department (DOP) to collect geolocators who were placed in some cory`s shearwaters (Calonectris diomedea borealis) from 2 colonies of Corvo island. The data will allow us to obtain information about wintering and feeding areas and about their migration. This information is very useful to understanding the ecology and biology of this species and other seabirds and essential to their conservation.

  Thank you for the visit and to the 7 cory`s who brought the geolocators back.
