Pacific Rim Conservation biologists have written or been involved in the development and writing of numerous natural resource management plans and exercises for prioritizing conservation/fencing actions and selecting among alternatives. We use this experience to help partners determine conservation goals and priorities, develop long-term management plans, and implement short-term work plans.
Global Seabird Restoration Database-The seabird restoration database will be an open-access searchable database of past, current and present seabird restoration projects worldwide. In collaboration with Project Puffin (National Audubon Society) and Northern Illinois University, we have started a global review and compilation of seabird social attraction and translocation projects. Seabirds are some of the most threatened animals on earth, with 98 species considered globally threatened and breeding on islands, where they are at greatest risk. Restoring seabirds to islands, in particular, is an important conservation action for threatened seabird species. Research has been undertaken in the field of seabird restoration, but key knowledge gaps still exist in the efficacy, efficiency and likelihood of success. The review will result in a dataset of seabird restoration techniques used on islands around the world, including social attraction and translocation, creating a centralized, publically available location to store project location, focal species, restoration method, and outcome. If you have data you would like to contribute to this project, please contact Dr. Dena Spatz at seabirddatabase at gmail dot com.
