Abstract

This article focuses on the role of international law with respect to migratory seabird conservation in polar ocean areas in the light of climate change. It blends several topical international law challenges, particularly a convergence of the classical challenge of migratory bird conservation with the novel challenge of responding to the pervasive and growing impacts of climate change on species and ecosystems.

Keywords: seabirds, migratory species, polar regions, Convention on Migratory Species, climate change
