"Wings and waves": working to protect albatrosses in Peruvian waters

The marine fauna of Peru is threatened by several factors.  Some of the threatened species are seabirds (especially albatrosses) for which there is little information available from Peruvian waters.

 APECO (the Peruvian Association for the Conservation of Nature) is developing a project: "Albatrosses, Petrels and Fisheries in Peru", with funding by ACAP, the American Bird Conservancy and the Rufford Small Grants Foundation. 

 Information on the "Alas y Olas" (Wings and Waves) Project of APECO can be found at http://www.apeco.org.pe/web/ and http://sites.google.com/site/alasyolas/.
