Plastic ingestion of seabirds of the GBR - tracing and comparing bird movements with evidence of plastic ingestion

 

Working with Krista Verlis, PhD student of Central Queensland University, who is looking at plastic ingestion in wedge-tailed shearwaters of the Great Barrier Reef. We hope to combine tracking and ingestion data to link ingestion rates with specific foraging locations of the Heron Island shearwater colony.
