Testing adaptation options in response to climate change
In partnership with managers working for the Tasmanian conservation agency (DPIPWE), we are developing and testing adaptation options to help the vulnerable Shy Albatross cope with climate change. This species breeds only on three Tasmanian islands, and is projected to decline under climate change.
We are evaluating the use of a Gigapan camera system for monitoring the success of several interventions, including disease treatment and provision of artificial nests to boost breeding success.
