Gov of St Helena
Host Country Institutions:
Gov of Ascension - AIGCD, SHNT - St Helena National Trust, Queens University
St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha
This project will clarify whether the storm-petrels nesting on St Helena and Ascension are the same species that occurs elsewhere in the Atlantic (Oceanodroma castro) or whether they constitute one or more species new to science. The project will survey all known colonies and re-assess their IUCN conservation status accordingly.
