Keywords:aerial census, Arctocephalus pusillus pusillus, Cape cormorant, Cape fur seal, Phalacrocorax capensis, Baía dos Tigres
A total of 250,786 Cape Cormorants, of which 16,038 were individuals on nests in 349 colonies, and 15,831 Cape Fur Seals were counted during a complete aerial photographic census of the island of Tigres and part of the adjacent coast in Angola in March 2017. Such a concentration of birds and seals and the large number of breeding Cape Cormorants highlights the need to protect Tigres and its rich surrounding waters.
