Helping save seabirds: news from the Southern Seabird Solutions Trust

The Southern Seabird Solutions Trust (SSST) has this month published its 13th Newsletter on line (click here to access the earlier newsletters).

The newsletter reports of a competition for New Zealand fishers (the Seabird Safe Award), news of a liaison trip to South Africa, the possibility of Argentina establishing a similar organization to the SSST to facilitate government, academia, environmental groups and industry working more closely on seabird bycatch issues, and the appointment of a new manager for the trust.

In addition, the ‘Mitigation Development Pathway' resource has been created as a step-by-step process to assist in the development of mitigation devices and methods.

The SSST's on-line newsletter can be received by e-mail on request to the Trust Manager, Amie Sinden at Esta dirección de correo electrónico está siendo protegida contra los robots de spam. Necesita tener JavaScript habilitado para poder verlo..
