"It's a chilly winter evening. A northern gannet lets out a loud graaak. Swiftly and carefully, a scientist scoops the bird off the surface of the water into a net so that a team of experts can implant a high-tech tag. Scientists will track this seabird‚Äîand many others‚Äîto learn its movement patterns over the following years. Find out how scientists are working to ensure clean, renewable offshore wind power won't spell disaster for the millions of seabirds that play a critical role in the ocean food web."
