The goal of this group is to enhance our understanding of seabird movement behaviour and ecology to aid in conservation planning in the Caribbean region. This is achieved through the monitoring and GPS tracking of important populations at key breeding sites located in the UK Overseas Territories of Anguilla and the British Virgin Islands.

To date, six key species representing globally and regionally important populations have been GPS tracked within Anguilla and BVI: the Magnificent frigatebird, Brown booby, Masked booby, Sooty tern, Red-billed tropicbird and Roseate tern.
