Our primary objective is to promote western Yellow-billed Cuckoo standardized surveys in Mexico by providing a training workshop free to Mexican biologists.
Project Description The Prescott College Kino Bay Center for Cultural and Ecological Studies proposes to build upon its Waterbird Monitoring Program (WMP) in the Midriff Island region of the Gulf of California. With its permanent presence, partnerships, and proven record of successful waterbird monitoring, the WMP contributes to habitat protection efforts integrating monitoring, research and
Project Description We will develop and implement a standardized monitoring protocol through a network of regional partners and in coordination with partners in the United States. Our goal is to measure population trends and spatial distribution of waterbirds in relation to changes in habitat, disturbance, climate change, and other limiting factors. Learn More Eduardo Palacios
Belding’s Yellowthroat (Geothlypis beldingi) is an endemic species from the Baja California Peninsula. It’s considered endangered (Mexico and IUCN) and inhabits peninsular oases.
Project Description An initial project of the Borderlands Habitat Restoration Initiative is to enhance the nectar landscape for hummingbirds and other pollinators by adding hummingbird pollinated plants at sites along Sonoita Creek in the Santa Cruz River Watershed. This project seeks to improve pollination services so that increased fruit and seed set will provide more
Project Description The Ceuta Lagoon System, located in Sinaloa, is a site of international significance in terms of biodiversity. It is listed as a Ramsar site, is part of the Western Hemisphere Shorebirds Reserve Network, and has a national decree as a Natural Protected Area, managed by CONANP (Comisión Nacional de Areas Naturales Protegidas). This
Project Description We propose to conduct a workshop to establish a methodological framework for testing hypotheses that could explain the decrease in population size of shorebirds in the Western Hemisphere. The shorebird monitoring program in the Northwestern Mexico is coordinated by Terra Peninsular and supported by CRIMBI (USFS) began in 2011 and will continue through
Project Description The Arizona Coordinated Bird Monitoring Program has been developed to provide a framework for the design and implementation of the long-term monitoring of Arizona’s birds. The second segment of the program is to implement Sonoran Desert bird surveys. The objectives are to estimate and monitor the number of birds, by species, breeding (or
Project Description This project will contribute to bird conservation by collecting bird location and abundance data for the SJV’s climate change impact study, providing data for an under-sampled SJV focus area, and by increasing volunteer and professional capacity. Sky Island Alliance will work with bird experts and volunteers—from Mexico and the U.S.—to survey under-sampled habitats
Distribution and Status Data for Breeding Birds in the Sky Islands and adjacent Sierra Madre Occidental of northwest Mexico
Project Description Information on the distribution and abundance of birds are important for efficient conservation planning, management, and for monitoring changes in populations across time and space. Despite high diversity and significant threats, current information on birds is not available across much of the Sky Islands region of Sonora and in the adjacent Sierra Madre
