Great shearwaters (Ardenna gravis) are the most abundant shearwater in the northwest Atlantic during their wintering season, yet we still don’t understand that much about them. Using satellite telemetry over the past 7 years, researchers at the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary are starting to figure where they go and how long they stay, along with the reasons why.

Keith Powers serves as a research ornithologist for this project with the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary funded by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation. Keith is retired from the tech industry and has experience working with seabirds in Alaska with LSU and at the Manomet Bird Observatory.
