Regular February Meeting: Contaminants and Key Marine Sites for Seabirds

February 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Looking Out and Looking In: Connections Between Colonial Seabirds, Contaminants, and Marine Protection by Mark Mallory

In this chat, Mark will discuss examples of his lab’s research on seabirds nesting along the Arctic and Atlantic coasts, and how seabirds are useful sentinels of the health of marine ecosystems. In particular, he’ll talk about the lab’s work on tracking seabirds and how that is used for marine spatial planning and marine protected work, as well as research on contaminants at seabird colonies.

Mark Mallory is a Canada Research Chair and Professor in the Biology Department at  Acadia University.
