Expansion of albatross and petrel monitoring on South Georgia – feasibility study. Phase 1: Review of ACAP-listed species monitoring programmes on South Georgia 2022
This report provides a synthesis of past and existing monitoring programmes of the seven ACAP (Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels) listed species that breed on South Georgia. It also identifies all known colony locations for these species nesting on the archipelago and presents maps and information on these locations.
In addition, the report presents a comparison of the different monitoring techniques that have been used on related species elsewhere and could be used in the future to monitor ACAP species at other locations around South Georgia for the purposes of enhancing monitoring schemes for these threatened seabird species.
