BirdLife experts and marine stakeholders collaborate to define how to better protect oceans

“Within the FAME project 2010 – 2013, BirdLife partners from UK, Ireland, France, Portugal and Spain have been collaborating with the offshore renewable company WavEC and Minho University in Portugal to assemble environmental, ecological and human-related data. The purpose of the project is to develop and propose sustainable practices for human activities at sea. Using birds as an indicator for wildlife, the Partners have been studying why birds feed where they do and have mapped activity overlap between seabirds and human activity. These achievements have been possible thanks to the innovative use of tracking techniques such as miniature tags (GPS tags and Dive loggers), and through the assemblage of information through coastal and beached bird surveys that aim to identify causes of seabird mortality.”
