This Environment Canada supported work is part of a larger research program based at Memorial University of Newfoundland using GLS and PTTs to track the migration of Northern Gannets from 4 of their 6 North American colonies. They are investigating how they use ocean habitat, which marine areas are most important for them and how they are affected by climatic and anthropogenic influences. This particular deployment of 13 tags was a direct response to monitoring the use of the Gulf of Mexico given the April 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
This is a joint project between Memorial University of Newfoundland and Environment Canada. Other Northern Gannets tagged with our partners at Cape St. Mary's and Funk Island, Newfoundland during September 2010 can be found at this SeaTurtle page: Northern Gannet Migration
If you have questions or would like to request the use of maps or data for this project please contact Greg Robertson at Environment Canada (Greg.Robertson@ec.gc.ca) or Bill Montevecchi at Memorial University (email@example.com).
The tags and satellite fees are directly funded by Environment Canada.
