Less ice and higher levels of environmental toxins have consequences for the rare ivory gull.

The gull’s habitat is the Arctic drift ice, and new research from the Norwegian Polar Institute shows that the population reduces by 3 % each year, according to researcher Hallvard Strøm.

  1. I was very intrigued with this article on “Fewer ivory gulls in the Arctic”, and would like more information. I went through the Norwegian Polar Institute web site and could not find the information stated in the article or more details. I’ll try to download raw data from SEAPOP and SEATRACK. I’d encourage the author to add more details for the environmentally challenged of us.
