The Jamaican Petrel, is it extinct or alive?

Winds Jamaica Nov 13 - Too slow winds for Petrels?

Winds Jamaica Nov 13 - Too slow winds for Petrels?

I am pleased to be allowed to report on Hadoram Shirihai’s expeditions of the seven seas in search of lost seabirds.

Here is the last update from Jamaica, from the upcoming search for Jamaica Petrel. Background About Jamaica Petrel can be found on Birdlife internationals Data Zone pages and the announcement of the gadfly expeditions.

Nov 13, 2009.  Hadoram writes:

The expedition will start in few days, all is ready, the boat and the two ton chum etc

The image above is the ocean/wind pattern between Jamaica and Cuba for at least the first week of the expedition, perhaps a bit too calm for petrels, so I hope for stronger wind, we will see…

Best regards,

Hadoram
