INTRODUCTION This report reviews literature on the effects of aircraft disturbances on seabirds, shorebirds and marine mammals in order to provide background information for an assessment of current overflight regulations in Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. There are numerous studies that have investigated the effects of aircrafts on birds; therefore, in order to narrow down the scope of this review, I focus on studies that examine seabird and shorebird species that occur on…

Human disturbance and the hauling out behaviour of Steller sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus)

There is considerable interest in assessing and mitigating disruptive effects of humans on the behaviour of marine mammals, especially for species with uncertain or decreasing population trends.

EFFECTS OF DISTURBANCE BY AIRCRAFT OVERFLIGHT ON WATERBIRDS - AN EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH

The hazards of bird strikes are not the only conflict between aircraft and birds. From the point of view of the birds, aircraft overflights can be an important source of disturbance. Such

Disturbance, Habituation, and Management of Waterbird Colonies

-This Commentary presents a critique of studies of effects of human disturbance on breeding colonial waterbirds, including a recent review by Carney and Sydeman (1999). It challenges the mind-set

AN URBAN SUCCESS STORY: BREEDING SEABIRDS ON ALCATRAZ ISLAND, CALIFORNIA, 1990-2002

In recent years, Alcatraz Island has become an important breeding site for seabirds, including Brandt’s Cormorant Phalacrocorax penicillatus, Pelagic Cormorant P. pelagicus, Pigeon Guillemot Cepphus

Factors Affecting Distribution of Gulls (Larus spp.) on Two New Jersey Coastal Bays

The distribution and abundance of gulls were examined on Raritan and Delaware Bays from 20 April to 26 October 1982. Gull numbers were affected by seasonal, tidal, weather-related, and human

Variability in reactions of Pacific harbor seals, Phoca vitulina richardsi, to disturbance

In many locations, disturbance is an important factor affecting the haulout patterns of harbor seals, Phoca vitulina, and the effects of disturbance may be quite mild or may cause displacement and even mortality.

The Response of Sea Birds to Simulated Acoustic and Visual Aircraft Stimuli

This paper describes an experiment conducted in the field to assess the response of seabirds to helicopter overflights. It also attempts to assess the importance of a visual cue to aircraft

Escape responses of hauled out ringed seals (Phoca hispida) to aircraft disturbance

The study indicated that the risk of scaring ringed seals into the water can be substantially reduced if small-type helicopters do not approach them closer than about 1500 m, and small fixed-winged aircraft not closer thanabout 500’m.
