We evaluated the energy cost of vessel disturbance for individual Kittlitz’s Murrelets Brachyramphus brevirostris in Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve in Alaska, USA. We used Monte Carlo simulations to model the daily energy expense associated with flight from vessels by both breeding and non-breeding birds and evaluated risk based on both the...
Summer breeding populations of Kittlitz's Murrelets (Brachyramphus brevirostris) have declined by 80–90% in southeastern Alaska during the past 25 years. Boating activities overlap considerably in space and time with Kittlitz's Murrelets in Glacier Bay, and disturbance could affect individuals by causing them to fly away from preferred foraging sit...
The Kittlitz's murrelet is a candidate species for listing under the Endangered Species Act that has dramatically declined over the past three decades across its range. Glacier Bay National Park and Preserve supports a large portion of the world population of Kittlitz's murrelets during their summer breeding season. Although not a likely cause for...
