Storm-petrels are among the least known seabird species, mostly due to their cryptic and nocturnal habits. However, the knowledge of several species has been expanding thanks to the increasing interest of researchers as well as technological advances for locating colonies, tracking birds at sea, and studying their general ecology. In this webinar, FERNANDO MEDRANO, the assistant director of the Chilean NGO called Red de Observadores de Aves y Vida Silvestre de Chile, will present an overview on what is known and yet unknown about the storm-petrels of the world.

He has worked with several species of storm-petrels across the world, helping to discover the very first breeding colonies for several species of storm-petrels in the Atacama Desert.
