Tracking data on black-browed albatrosses using GPS and geolocators (GLS)

Tracking data of black-browed albatrosses have been obtained by the deployment of GPS and GLS devices. These data enable the identification of important foraging areas, factors driving habitat selection and modelling of the parameters that are driving population changes and relate those to environmental variables (i.e. climate and fisheries) and management practices (fisheries regulations). Data are collected at New Island and Steeple Jason, in the western part of the Falkland Islands archipelago. More than 350 tracks are currently stored at BirdLife's database, from 2008 to 2010, and more tracks obtained from both GPS and GLS are available from the data owners on request.
