Our mission

The Gulf of Maine Seabird Working Group (GOMSWG) is a partnership between public and private organizations dedicated to restoring and protecting seabirds in the Gulf of Maine.

GOMSWG participants have worked together to guide seabird restoration on offshore islands. Two meetings are held annually to discuss conservation issues, new research findings, and the status of breeding colonies
