Monitoring of seabird populations on St. Lawrence Island, AK, specifically those surrounding the village of Savoonga. The diet of planktivorous and piscivorous seabirds on the island has been shown to be tied to large-scale ocean conditions and local sea ice dynamics. My primary interest is in further understanding these links, as well as their consequences for the St. Lawrence Island Yup'ik people.
