Dedicated to the study and conservation of Pacific Seabirds and their environment.


Committees do much of PSG’s business and conservation work for which PSG is respected.  The Executive Council Committees work on tasks like communications (e.g., website, listserv, social media), conservation letters, small grants program, elections, and managing PSG Endowment. Working Committees focus on species or species groups and are created with a particular purpose.  The Executive Council approves all Committees, and Committee Coordinators are appointed or approved by the PSG Chair. The guidelines for creating a committee can be found in PSG’s Handbook.  All committees welcome and need ongoing participation. Contact the committee chairs or coordinators listed on the Committee pages for information or to volunteer. A description of PSG committees can also be found in the PSG Bylaws and Handbook. For more information or to join a committee, please contact the respective committee chair or coordinator.
