New Jersey Audubon Shorebird Survey needs volunteers to count shorebirds and record information about their behavior in the New Jersey meadowlands.
The survey is aimed at assessing status and changes in populations of shorebirds. The data collected by volunteers will be incorporated into the national database of the Program for Regional and International Shorebird Monitoring, whose overall goal is to monitor trends in shorebird populations.
In addition, the information will help identify areas important to southbound shorebirds, and define shorebird management goals for New Jersey.
New Jersey residents: don't miss this chance to make a difference!
