Abstract: More than 1.5 million seabirds breed in Haida Gwaii, B.C. Most are burrow-nesters concentrated at 64 colony sites. These globally significant seabird colonies have been put at risk due to the introduction of raccoons (Procyon lotor) to enhance the local fur trade in the 1940s. Evidence collected in the early 1990s indicated that raccoons pose a serious threat to approximately one-half of the burrow-nesting seabirds that breed in Haida Gwaii. Significant proportions of the world population of ancient murrelets (Synthliboramphus antiquus) are at risk. In response to this threat Parks Canada, Environment Canada’s Canadian Wildlife Service, the Laskeek Bay Conservation Society, and the British Columbia Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks (B.C. Environment, Wildlife Branch, and B.C. Parks) formed an interagency working group to develop a monitoring and control program. Three factors influenced the selection of seabird colony islands for annual monitoring: the number and species of seabirds present...
