“About 71% of the worlds’ surface is covered by water, mainly oceans and seas. Only in Europe, the size of the Economic Exclusive Zones (EEZs) of EU countries exceeds several times the terrestrial area…but how much do we actually know about our seas? Do we know where our seabird breeding populations go while migrating, feeding or resting? Are we sure human activities such as fishing or maritime transport are sustainable?
The answers to all these questions are complex, but we like to be challenged, and that is why BirdLife set up the Global Seabird Programme (GSP), and asks for your help to protect our wild marine habitats and species.”
