Albatrosses, shearwaters, and petrels are just a few of the species of birds who spend most of their life at sea. Some only touch land to breed. Many of these species stage spectacular migration flights covering thousands of miles. But how can we learn about the lives of these birds if they are always at sea? On this episode of Inquiry, we talk with MICHAEL BROOKE, the Strickland Curator of Ornithology at the University Museum of Zoology, Cambridge. His new book explores how state of the art new technology is allowing scientists to look into the lives of these ocean wanderers: FAR FROM LAND: THE MYSTERIOUS LIVES OF SEABIRDS.
