Seagull populations halved since 1980s

The number of seagulls in the Strait of Georgia is down by 50 per cent from the 1980s. Dr Peter Arcesse say the decline reflects changes in the availability of food.

Arcesse and other researchers collected 100 years of data on population numbers of Glaucous-winged Gulls, the most common seagull species found in the Lower Mainland, Victoria, Nanaimo and elsewhere in the region.
