Marine Bird Winter Surveys in Prince William Sound – 2022

This report summarizes the second Council-sponsored winter-time survey of marine birds in and around the tanker escort zones of Prince William Sound.

This work will help the Council understand local bird populations and habitats, the risks posed from an oil spill, and where special monitoring or protection is needed. Additionally, these surveys provide baseline monitoring information that can be used to understand the environmental impacts of terminal and tanker operations on marine bird species.
