Auklet mates synchronize their activity after independent migration
About the author
Jean-Baptiste Thiebot is a post-doc at NIPR. He worked in France on the migration of crested penguins and Amsterdam Albatross, Diomedea amsterdamensis, and showed the importance of considering these large-scale movements to design effective conservation measures. His studies on wintering seabirds now encompass a wide range of species from nearly all latitudes, including the Rhinoceros Auklet in Japan. He uses bio-logging devices such as light-based geolocation sensors to track the birds at sea, and also video data loggers to record their prey captures. He enjoys birding, hiking, surfing and diving, either in cold or warm places.
