|Coastal Stewardship: Making Beaches Safer for Birds|
Wednesday, June 15, 2022
4:00 – 5:00 p.m. ET
Each year, large numbers and varieties of shorebirds and seabirds travel along the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts of North America. These birds spend their winters in the southern US, Caribbean, and South America, then head north in the spring to breeding grounds in the United States and Canada.
In late summer, these travelers, joined by the young of the year, begin the return trip to warmer climates. Beaches, islands, and inland lakes and rivers provide valuable winter, stopover, and breeding habitat.
More information: During this webinar, participants will learn about some of these amazing migrants, the threats that they face annually, and management activities and programs that Audubon and partners have pioneered to reduce threats.
We will finish up with actions that you can take while visiting coastal habitats this summer to help these beautiful birds reach their destinations and successfully raise their young.
