I am a MSc student working on the foraging ecology of Wedge-tailed shearwaters (WTS). I am working on Reunion Island and D'Arros, Seychelles (with the Save Our Seas Foundation) during the WTS breeding seasons (October - April). Using GPS, TDRs as well as stable isotope analysis I aim to understand more about their foraging ecology and find out what they are doing out at sea.
