PSG Delegates to the World Seabird Union

The World Seabird Union (WSU) was incorporated in January 2012 and is made up of 25 marine ornithological organizations with members representing 52 countries. The World Seabird Union’s mission is to place seabird research, management, and conservation into a worldwide perspective. The World Seabird Union’s vision is to aid in creating global partnerships that will continue into the future by sharing research, knowledge, and ideas on a global level.

The Pacific Seabird Group is a founding member organization and an integral part of the World Seabird Union.  PSG has a primary and secondary delegate, and one vote. The WSU recommends that delegates serve for five years, allowing the representative to begin after a World Seabird Conference and help plan the next World Seabird Conference. The delegate(s) participates in conference calls (quarterly; monthly the year prior to the World Seabird Conference) and provides updates, as needed, and an annual report to the Executive Council of PSG.

PSG Primary Delegate to WSU: Kathy Kuletz (October 2015-2020)
PSG Secondary Delegate to WSU: Ken Morgan (October 2015-2020)
