In 2014, we found that

blue-footed boobies in the Galápagos are declining.

We put metal and plastic bands on the legs of > 1000 birds in

2011 - 2013.

But understanding how the birds are doing (by boat surveys) takes a lot of money and effort.

The Blue Feet Foundation and Galapagos Conservancy supported our efforts to do an updated

survey in 2017.

What if we could continuously monitor the population?

We can! But we need your help: report any banded blue-footed boobies you see when you

visit the Galápagos!
