Research

As a federally listed species, Marbled Murrelets are under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Division of Wildlife Conservation is currently partnering with federal agencies, universities and conservation organizations to strengthen monitoring efforts and conduct ongoing research, primarily in Southeast Alaska. Several research projects in Alaska related to nesting habits, foraging ecology and distribution have been completed since 2004. At-sea surveys conducted by USFWS in 1993 will be repeated in the 2010 field season through a partnership between ADF&G and Alaska Audubon, providing important population trend information of Marbled Murrelets in Glacier Bay.
