 {mosimage}

A report has been published that reports the outcome of a workshop held in Lima, Peru in June 2007 entitled “Seabirds and Seabird-Fishery Interactions”.   The report has been published by BirdLife International along with the  American Bird Conservancy.

 As well as covering the breeding seabirds of Peruvian islands it also considers the ACAP-listed Waved Albatross Phoebastria irrorata that visits Peruvian waters from its breeding grounds in the Ecuadorian Galapagos Islands.
