Shearwater Conservation

The Balearic shearwater has been catalogued globally as Critically Endangered following IUCN criteria,

This Project aims at the monitoring of breeding populations, using geolocators (GLS) and global positioning system (GPS) in order to identify key marine areas. It will be led by the scientists David García and Maite Louzao, in coordination with SEO-Birdlife.

IPF is currently supporting a second phase of this key project, to ensure data collection and follow up in 2014.
