Project of Rute Costa (CESAM/DBio) - colored rings on seagulls confirm successful bird rehabilitation
Published in 31/3/2017
It is one of the long-life rehabilitation seabird monitoring projects in Portugal. Since 2013 more than 130 wounded seagulls that have entered in the Marine Mammals Rehabilitation Center (CRAM) of Quiaios or ECOMARE were tagged with colored washers, a ringing technique that allows animals to be identified by sighting without recapture. This successful project, coordinated by Rute Costa, a biologist at CESAM/DBio, has already enabled seagulls to be followed from Morocco to northern Europe.
