Coordinating across eight agencies to count vulnerable shorebirds

17 junio 2015

American Oystercatcher nests are sparsely distributed, time-intensive to find, and often in remote locations, all adding to the challenge of estimating the size of their breeding population. However, a new study demonstrates that a new, simplified survey method, coordinated across eight agencies, has tremendous potential to provide accurate population estimates and aid in the species’ conservation.
