What do Sea Gulls do for the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    Seagulls, like all animal species, contribute in one way or another to various ecosystems. Since they often feed as opportunistic scavengers, they help clean up unsightly carcasses on beaches or other areas where a dead animal may impede on the aesthetic value.  Seagulls also feed on crabs and small fish. Thus as predators, they could have a negative impact on the populations of their prey.  This doesn’t mean, however, that seagull predation doesn’t play an important role in maintaining a balance within a given ecosystem. They also have an affect on other animal species through kleptoparasitism by stealing food.
