The objective of this project is to track the post-breeding migration of the threatened Pink-footed Shearwater (Puffinus creatopus) from a breeding colony in the Juan Fernandez Archipelago (Chile), 670 km off the coast of South America. Five birds were tagged with solar-powered transmitters programmed to operate on a cycle of 10 hr ON and 48 hr OFF. The tagged birds started their journey from nesting burrows on the main Isla Robinson.

El objetivo de este proyecto es seguir la migracion desde la colonia, en el archipielago Juan Fernandez, a 670 Km. de la costa de Chile, de los pardelas de pata rosada (Puffinus creatopus, especie amenazada), durante el periodo de post cria. El seguimiento de cinco pajaros comenzo en los nidos subterraneos de la colonia situada en la isla Robinson, utilizando transmisores alimentados por energia solar, programados para operar en ciclos alternos: 10 horas activos y 48 horas inactivos.
