It becomes so important to observe a wild life for obtaining not only knowledge of its biological behaviors but also interactions with human beings in terms of geoenvironmental investigation and assessment. A sensor network is considered to be a suitable and powerful tool to monitor and observe a wild life in fields. In order to monitor/observe seabirds, a sensor network is deployed in Awashima island, Japan. A sensor platform is useful for early and quick deployment in fields. Atlas, a server - client type sensor platform, is used with several sensors, i.e., infrared sensors, thermometers within a nest, a sound sensor and network camera. Although the project has just started, useful data such as a leaving/returning pattern of seabirds are figured out by the sensor network.
