The Kittlitz’s Murrelet was listed as a candidate under the Endangered Species Act in 2004. Subsequently, the Kittlitz’s Murrelet Technical Committee (KMTC) was formed in 2008 to address concerns about the status and conservation of this rare seabird.

The purpose of the KMTC is to: (1) act as a technical authority on the status, distribution, and life history of the Kittlitz’s Murrelet; (2) identify, encourage, and facilitate research; (3) address conservation issues; and, (4) act as a liaison between research and management.

The KMTC currently comprises roughly 30 members who wish to remain apprised of activities and meet annually in conjunction with the PSG annual meeting. We have an active listserve to help facilitate communication among members.
