The Pink-footed Shearwater (Puffinus creatopus) is listed as Vulnerable by IUCN and is included in Appendix 1 of the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals. The government of Chile has listed the species as nationally endangered and is devoting resources to its conservation. With support from local residents, the Chilean federal government (Corporación Nacional Forestal, or CONAF), American Bird Conservancy and the Canadian Wildlife Service, Oikonos has begun a community-based conservation initiative on Isla Mocha. The key strategies are to build capacity in the community to protect breeding birds and to investigate threats at-sea when they encounter human activities in the territorial waters of at least seven countries.
Since 2006, Oikonos and partners have investigated the migration behavior and at-sea threats of Pink-footed Shearwaters. See previous results:
During the last week of April 2011, Josh Adams and Valentina Colodro, together with the Isla Mocha park rangers (Alejandro, Benito, and Jaime) attached 9 small, solar-powered satellite transmitters to breeding adults on Isla Mocha, Chile. Chicks will soon fledge (early May) and the adults have initiated their post-breeding northern migration along the entire coast of the Americas.
"Pink-footed Shearwater Conservation" is a collaborative project of the Juan Fernández Islands Conservancy program of Oikonos Ecosystem Knowledge in partnership with U.S. Geological Survey and American Bird Conservancy.
Este proyecto de investigacion nombrado “Conservación de la Fardela Blanca” realizdo por las Conservacionistas de las Islas Juan Fernández es una colaboración de organizaciones ONG e instituciones gubernamentales y académicas: Oikonos, el U.S. Geological Survey y American Bird Conservancy.
