Development of Global “Seabird Atlas”

A newly developed “Seabird Atlas” catalogs sensitive ecological areas for seabirds around the world. Seabirds are the most threatened group of birds since they travel thousands of kilometers across international waters, most of which are unprotected. This means that conservation must become an international effort. The goal of the “Seabird Atlas” is to inform policy makers around the world in deciding what open ocean or near shore areas should be a priority for conservation. You can access the interactive version of the Atlas from the link below. It’s pretty fun!
