Dr Annette Fayet is an ecologist focusing on the movement ecology of seabirds. She investigates the movements and behaviour of seabirds at sea, in particular aiming to uncover where they migrate, where they go to feed, what influences those movements, how they interact with their environment, and what consequences this may have for the birds’ reproduction and survival.
Seabirds are some of the most endangered birds on earth and she is interested to understand what is driving declines of their populations, and how seabirds react and recover from experiencing difficult conditions. Her main study species are the Atlantic puffin, several species of shearwaters, and tropicbirds, and she leads research projects in the North Atlantic and in the western Indian Ocean.
