A Wilson's Storm-Petrel, Oceanites
oceanicus, in flight
Throughout June and July, Wilson's Petrels Oceanites
oceanicus had been well represented and numbers had risen to a maximum count of 45 on 28th June.
Hay cinco especies de habitos oceanicos que llegan muy eventualmente a las costas de la isla, o que han sido vistas en el mar, como Oceanites
oceanicus (Clark, 1902), por lo que no es de extranar la ausencia de su registro en este trabajo.
But it's wrong to say that the Adelie gang are moving out, because Adelies are site-specific nesters, according to Ron Naveen, founder of Oceanites
, a US-based science and educational foundation.
He's also the founder and president of Oceanites (OHshun-AYE-tees), the nonprofit funding organ for the Antarctic Site Inventory.
Next year, conditions permitting, an Oceanites team will return to this same boulder and count again.

Research conducted by Oceanites
, a non-profit organisation based in the US, supports the view that tourism has had little or no negative effect on animal or plant life--yet.
Petrels (Oceanodroma, Oceanites
, Pelagodroma, Halocyptena, Nesofregetta) are also found at all latitudes except in the Arctic.
