Title: Status of Seabird Colonies in Northeastern PWS

Project Year and Number: 1999: 99381

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: None

Principal Investigator (PI): Mary Anne Bishop, Prince William Sound Science Center

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location: Prince William Sound

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Black Oystercatchers , Pigeon Guillemot

Abstract: With the most recent colony data from 6-24 years old, current documentation on seabird colonies in northeastern Prince William Sound may not reflect recent changes in size, species composition, and location that may have occurred since the oil spill. Areas around northeastern Prince William Sound (Port Gravina to Orca Inlet) are pending purchase by the Trustee Council to aid in the restoration of injured species. These lands may be subject to increased human pressure that may increase human/wildlife interactions. This project will establish current population data for the seven known colonies in these areas and survey the coastline for suspected and unknown seabird colonies. Acquisition of this information is necessary to minimize human disturbance of injured species.
