Indian Ocean seabirds need increased protection

But these populations would be more vulnerable than across all the other oceans on the planet, reveals a study recently carried out by the universities of Exeter, Heriot-Watt and La Réunion, and the Zoological Society of London1. The reason: the absence of hotspots where predators, including seabirds, come to feed in quantity.
