Falkland Islands Seabird Monitoring Programme

Counting seabird colonies SteepleThe Falkland Islands Seabird Monitoring Programme has been around, in one form or another, for 27 years. Today, it is an annual event visiting a number of sites around the Falkland Islands to count penguins, albatrosses and petrels. The Programme provides estimates of trends in the numbers of breeding pairs, as well as breeding success, and is critical in understanding what is happening to a number of the globally significant seabird populations supported by the Islands.
