The globally Vulnerable Yelkouan Shearwater Puffinus yelkouan is a Mediterranean breeding endemic, known to migrate into the Black Sea. The species’ breeding sites are considered to be only partly known with most of the known breeding population falling within France, Italy and Malta in the central Mediterranean.
A free admission is offered in return for new information to the 42nd CIESM Congress to be held in October next year in Cascais, Portugal, where a session on top predators, including seabirds, will be hosted (click here for a list of the 75 session themes). The Commission is based in Monaco and currently has 23 member states. Its President is H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
