Seabirds.net is dedicated to the facilitation of communication and data sharing between seabird scientists around the world. Our initiative began in 2007 and has been supported by major global seabird organizations in all corners of the globe.
Seabirds are diverse, including birds such as penguins, albatrosses, auks, cormorants, and gulls. They are important, highly visible components of marine ecosystems. Seabirds are affected by a wide range of human activities, including bycatch from fishing, climate change, and land based threats to their breeding sites. Seabird research contributes to their conservation, highlights changes in their populations, and is fundamental to a full understanding of marine ecosystems.
Seabirds.net is a gateway to:
- The Seabird Information Network
- Petrel (Global seabird researcher directory)
- Junior scientist job and post graduate searches
