Dr Henri Weimerskirch and team from Centre d'Etudes Biologiques de Chize, France. We tracked wedge-tailed shearwaters (Ardenna pacifica) of various colonies in New Caledonia to identify foraging grounds and behaviors.

Ultimately, we hope to directly compare with populations of the same species from the southern Great Barrier Reef populations on which I have conducted extensive research.
