By the end of the project we will have provided comprehensive and rigorous data on the at-sea distribution and status of regionally and globally important seabird populations to the governments of Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands and established a self-sustaining seabird monitoring programme in each territory. In the longer term, this will enhance strategic sustainable marine planning in these UKOTs, ensuring both the conservation of globally important seabird populations, and the sustainable management of marine resources for the benefit of the people of Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands.
