Seabird Ecology On Diego Garcia

Two fieldworkers (Peter Carr & Hannah Wood) from ZSL/Exeter University visited Diego Garcia from 08 January to 07 February 2018 to conduct further seabird research as part of the Bertarelli Programme of Marine Science (BPMS) funded Chagos Archipelago Seabird Ecology project. The primary objectives of the trip were to document the year round biology and foraging ecology of breeding Red-footed Boobies (RFB) at Barton Point Nature Reserve; to document the distribution of non-breeding RFBs from the colony on Diego Garcia and, to establish the status and distribution of breeding RFB on DG.
