    Abstract

    During the summer of 2022 (January/February), seabird and marine mammals surveys were performed on Welchness Cape, Dundee Island. The purpose of preliminary studies was to generate a baseline data on biodiversity occurring at this location, and eventually establish it as a study site for research and monitoring. This is a first attempt to gather information to further analyze potential research lines in the island.
