Last summer, in collaboration with PRBO Conservation Science, we were able to conduct a pilot study of the diving behavior of Cassin’s auklets breeding on Southeast Farallon Island. This summer we will repeat the study with Eleanor Caves’11 who has recieved a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to participate in the seabird research on the island, and to help with the study of Cassin’s auklet diving behavior.
