Jonathan Felis

Jonathan Felis is a geographer at the Western Ecological Research Center.

The research Jonathan Felis is involved in seeks to understand seabird foraging ecology and identify the processes responsible for habitat selection, particularly through the use of tracking technologies and at-sea surveys. As a geographer, Jonathan's goal is to apply these data spatially in order to better inform conservation and management decisions in the context of marine spatial planning.
