Executive Director Recommendation: Fund

Executive Director Comments: This project will produce a manuscript on differences in at-sea habitat use by marbled murrelets and Kittlitz's murrelets, two species injured by the oil spill. There appears to be an overlap in habitat and therefore competition for food. Each species of murrelet may be hindering the recovery of the other species. The manuscript would yield insight on the recovery of these two species.
