Of Puffins and Petrels: Conserving Seabirds of the Outer Coast of Washington

Redwood Region Audubon Society hosts Dr. Peter Hodum, whose research focuses primarily on the conservation and ecology of threatened seabirds and island ecosystems in Chile and Washington State. Washington is blessed with a rich community of breeding and wintering seabirds. However, little is known about the ecology and conservation status of many of the species. Moving between islands, seascapes, and species of the Outer Coast, Peter will share stories about a collaborative research program focused on improving our understanding of species such as the Tufted Puffin, Rhinoceros Auklet, Cassin’s Auklet and Leach’s and Fork-tailed Storm-Petrels.
