Dr Bryan Nelson Memorial Lecture
Around the world, the majority of seabird populations are declining – many of them to globally threatened levels. From the puffins and kittiwakes of the British Isles to the albatross and petrels of the southern oceans, species are suffering due to pollution, climate change, commercial fisheries and habitat loss. Join Professor John Croxall from BirdLife International to hear about the pioneering conservation work that’s been taking place to try and save these precious birds and where this could be taking us in future.
