The Port of Los Angeles began a project in 2005 using Elegant and Caspian Tern decoys to relocate a colony of these birds away from a Least Tern nesting area.

In 2008, Grupo de Ecología y Conservación de Islas, A.C. in Baja, Mexico began a seabird restoration project with Heerman’s Gull and Elegant Tern decoys on Asunción and San Roque Islands, El Vizcaíno Biosphere Reserve, Mexico.  The project is ongoing as of 2012.
