These past weeks we have been witnesses to stark reminders of inequality and injustice in the United States. As an organization founded by bird conservationists over 55 years ago, to many in our community the racist incident in the Central Park Ramble in New York City, in which a white woman called the police on Christian Cooper, a black birder, was a very poignant example. But it is just one example of the many tragic and ongoing moments that threaten the freedom and lives of black people and other people of color.
We are half way through the first ever Black Birders Week initiated and organized by #BlackAFinSTEM on Twitter and other social platforms in response to what happened to Christian Cooper in NYC.
We were excited to see our Water Tracker data utilized in building shorebird models in this recent publication led by Cornell Lab of Ornithology and The Nature Conservancy.
April and May were exciting months at the Palomarin Field Station. With spring migrants continuing to arrive and the breeding season in full swing, the banding interns and nesting searching interns were kept busy.
There are approximately 500 wooden nesting boxes scattered around on Southeast Farallon Island. See how they help us discover how long seabirds are living.
