Seabird Monitoring

Kure Atoll seabird monitoring program was established in 2000. The monitoring program increases our understanding of the mechanisms that regulate the nesting success and survival rates for the eighteen species that nest on Kure Atoll. Information gained from these studies is used to implement management actions to mitigate problems.
