Acension Island Expedition 2015

Army Ornithological Society on Ascension Island 2015


On the 5th April 2015 I travelled to Ascension Island with 11 other members of the Army Ornithological Society (AOS) on Expedition Booby Tern XXI. Our mission, over a 12 day period, was an ornithological survey of the breeding seabirds of Ascension Island, a continuation of a monitoring effort that has been running since 1987. The project is in direct support of the Ascension Island Government, assisted by AIG Conservation Office staff, and with the backing of the RSPB.

I will shortly be adding a new page to the blog called Stories from the Field where longer trip reports can be accessed. This report will be added in that category.
