At its winter meeting, the SJV Management Board hosted partners such as Grupo de Ecología y Conservación de Islas, Pronatura Noroeste, and Intermountain Bird Observatory to share progress on bird conservation in the SJV region.
Did you know Long-billed Curlews are snowbirds? Researchers from Intermountain Bird Observatory found that birds breeding in the Intermountain West are wintering in the Mexicali and Imperial valleys of the Sonoran Joint Venture. IBO Research Director Dr. Jay Carlisle shares some thoughts on collaboration for conserving this declining species.
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
The American Oystercatcher is a large and charismatic shorebird that lives on sandy beaches, islands, and coastal wetlands of the temperate and subtropical zones of the Western Hemisphere.
The 2013 Colorado River Terrestrial and Riparian Group (CRTR) Meeting will be held in Laughlin, Nevada from January 29-31, 2013. The CRTR meeting is a meeting of anyone who works on or near the Lower Colorado River Watershed conducting environmental or ecological studies, research, or restoration of terrestrial habitats. The meeting is open to all
A momentous workshop was held in October 2011 in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, to develop the first-ever standardized shorebird-monitoring protocol for Mexico.
By Eduardo Palacios On 14-17 January 2012, two teams of two-observers each surveyed the Snowy Plover population wintering in Bahía de San Quintín, Baja California, Mexico. Results are shown by type of habitat and locality of Bahia de San Quintin in Table 1. On 18 January 2012 we also surveyed the barrier beach of Estero
The Montrose and Luckenbach Trustee Councils and the Government of Mexico have announced a $4 million dollar award to a U.S-Mexico partnership that will implement a comprehensive five-year program focused on restoring seabird populations on seven islands off the Pacific coast of Mexico. Improvement of nesting grounds in Mexico will create more stable and viable
Workshop to form hypotheses and develop protocols for examining probable causes of population declines in shorebirds
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
