Plastic Connectivity: disentangling the problem of plastic pollution for pelagic seabirds
This project will evaluate the risk of plastic encounter by small pelagic seabirds, using an extensive tracking dataset and models of marine plastic distribution. We will communicate results to relevant authorities, NGOs, corporates and the public, providing a robust, evidence-based assessment of the scale of the plastics problem for seabirds.
This project has two main aims. The first is to evaluate the risk of marine plastic encounter by different species of small, pelagic seabird species, and identify the areas where risk is greatest.
