Kittlitz's Murrelet Monitoring
Parks monitored: Glacier Bay
The KIMU is a rare seabird endemic to Alaska and northeastern Russia, with the highest densities present in the northern Gulf of Alaska. The primary objective of having statistical power of >80% to detect a 33% population decline over 15 years (2.6% annual decline) for Kittlitz’s murrelets in Glacier Bay guided our distance-sampling study design process. Estimates for trend and abundance within the Bay proper have been calculated for 2011 and 2012 and will be made available upon completion of the protocol's peer review process.
