This group includes the ubiquitous gulls, overly adapted and acclimated to human behaviors. Others, like the murres, live their lives primarily at sea and are unlikely to be encountered or even known of by most of  us. Gulls illustrate a problem; the others can serve as barometers of the health of the oceans.
