Project Summary:
Seabirds are effective indicators of marine biodiversity hotspots and ocean health, and our preliminary work demonstrates the unique ability of magnificent frigatebirds to connect productive foraging zones offshore and nearshore to coastal onshore roosts. Here we will track adult and juvenile magnificent frigatebirds from multiple populations in the Caribbean UKOTs, to inform regional-scale marine and coastal zone management. Our legacy will be an approach to define, designate and zone vulnerable wetlands and marine habitats, applicable throughout the Caribbean.
