Onshore Environment: ABR Coastal Seabird Distribution and Abundance Final Report

Migratory waterfowl, shorebirds, and seabirds use the coastal margins of the Chukchi Sea on a seasonal basis. Birds of numerous species migrate from the Southern and Northern hemispheres in both the Old and New worlds to nest and rear their young in the Arctic. This report documents coastal seabird studies undertaken under the ONES program.

Shell Exploration & Production Company (Shell) initiated the Onshore/Nearshore Environmental Studies (ONES) program starting in 2010 to address environmental issues associated with the development of onshore infrastructure needed for transporting oil and gas from offshore prospects in the Chukchi and Beaufort seas to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS). ABR addressed four major subject areas for the ONES program: (1) vegetation, habitat and remote sensing (hereafter collectively referred to as habitat); (2) birds; (3) mammals; and (4) fish. This report summarizes activities undertaken during this program.
