The results of my research to date contribute directly to management and conservation actions in the Great Barrier Reef. The identification of critical foraging and resource environments is essential to identify areas most in need of protection and this information is being used toward determine management priorities.
My data and outcomes form part of larger datasets that formulate interpretations of how climate-change is impacting seabirds and other apex predators of the GBR and tropical marine systems.
They will also be used to analyse how environmental and oceanographic variation affect food supplies at three spatial scales, and thereproductive success and survivorship of these populations
