Adopt a tern

 The Ubbo Emmius Fund of the University of Groningen has started a crowd-funding activity. In 2012 I have started to deploy geolocators on the legrings of Arctic Terns. These small birds breed in the Arctic and winter in the Antarctic. The geolocators will reveal the migration route and timing. But most interesting is that we will monitor several years of migration by the same bird and hope to study shifts and changes in the flight plan of the bird. This should help us to study adaptations to global change.

Below, you can read an arcticle in the magazine for former university students.
