Impact of human activities on nesting Arctic terns (Sterna paradisaea)

Human activity close to breeding colonies often has a negative effect on the breeding success and nesting of individuals. One example is the nesting colony of the Arctic Tern (Sterna paradisaea) in administrative centre of Svalbard Longyearbyen. Previous studies found that incubating individuals are exposed to greater stress caused by human activit

Summary

Human activity close to breeding colonies often has a negative effect on the breeding success and nesting of individuals. One example is the nesting colony of the Arctic Tern (Sterna paradisaea) in administrative centre of Svalbard Longyearbyen. Previous studies found that incubating individuals are exposed to greater stress caused by human activities and consequently attention paid to the nest is smaller. The aim of this project is improve the knowledge about wildlife based on a study of three nesting colonies of the Arctic Tern which differ in levels of human presence and provide possible solutions applicable in the protection of this species. The project results will be possible apply on sustainable tourism, friendly outdoor recreation and to reduce the expected impact of ever-growing tourism in Svalbard on nesting activities of terns.
