Tracking wildlife affected by the gulf oil spill

The oil spill has created a massive number of problems and it will obviously take a long time to identify them let along do something about them. But it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know that birds are being hard hit.  While it is easy to see the damage to birds on the shore what about the birds out at sea?  What’s going on with them? Can they even forage in the same place as before?  Our newest GPS data loggers for seabirds have a solution that identifies seabird foraging behavior and switches the GPS positioning schedule from the infrequent GPS location attempts with in straight flight to 1 second GPS location attempts while foraging.  Because the GPS data loggers are so light it is important to save the battery for use when it is really needed.
