The date 3 July, is the the last day the great auk was observed alive in 1844. This should be a stark reminder, that the health of the world's oceans is not a given, and that the international community of scientists, conservationists and rest of society has to stand together to tackle many of these key issues.
With a rapidly growing human population, the demand for food (and fish) has led to disruptions in ocean food webs. We want to hear your stories and solutions#ClimateChange
Climate change is out of control and seabirds struggle to adapt to the massive changes. Share us your stories about field work and how your species has been affected
Many breeding grounds of seabirds are threatened by alien invasive species which predate on eggs or chicks. Over the past decades many eradication projects have had great success in restoring island communities to again become safe places for seabirds to breed. We would love to hear your stories!#PlasticPollution
Our disposable society has led to plastic wastelands in our oceans. Seabird eat this and feed it to their chicks! Can we save them? Tell us how!
