Going for Green: Chile purse seine project nominated for conservation award

Having travelled on an incredible migration up the Western coast of the Americas all the way to Alaska and then back down again, they settle on the small island to lay their eggs and raise their young. Some will succeed in this endeavour, flying out to sea to catch fish which will sustain them and their young over the breeding season. Others, however, will not be so fortunate.

This process, where seabirds are accidentally killed by industrial fishing operations is known as ‘bycatch’, and it is one of the biggest threats to seabirds.”
