Evening Talk: Far from Land: How modern technology has transformed knowledge of seabirds by Michael Brooke

When is this event?


Over the past 30 years, it has become possible to document the geographical movements and activities of seabirds when they are out of sight and beyond the horizon of the land-bound observer. This has been achieved via electronic devices attached to the birds. It is these findings that form the basis of Michael Brooke’s talk; the depths (up to 500m) reached by diving penguins, the 10,000 km loops undertaken in 20 days by petrels during incubation while the mate incubates, the speeds (130 km/hr) attained by albatrosses blasted across the Southern Ocean by a tailwind.
