The Island Conservation Society (ICS) has recently partnered with Professor Mathieu Le Corre (Université de La Réunion) to carry out a two-year research project on the Red-footed Booby (Sula sula) of Farquhar Atoll. The research will explore their abundance, habitat selection and movements at sea, using GPS devices, drones and genetic sampling. The project is supported by the Islands Development Company and the Farquhar Foundation and is being funded by the Seychelles Conservation and Climate Change Adaptation Trust (SeyCCAT). Results from this study will provide a vital understanding of the seabird populations and marine ecosystems of Seychelles.
