Ornithological Map / Diving Seabirds

Victoria Helene Haukøya Storemyr

Excerpt from Layered Landscapes Lofoten by Magdalena Haggärde and Gisle Løkken, published by Actar Publishers

Investigations of the conditions of seabirds such as murres, puffins and cormorants, create maps based on their migratory routes, and the resting and feeding areas for the birds, where each spot and connection might be crucial for the species’ viability. These beautiful patterns of survival are of course invisible in most other maps, as they are nonexistent as physical imprint, but once traced they give important meaning and awareness to the understanding of the landscape.
