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.
After the Partners in Flight V International Conference SJV staff and partners toured the Great Salt Lake, where the Audubon-managed South Shore Preserve and Lee Creek Area is located.
A momentous workshop was held in October 2011 in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, to develop the first-ever standardized shorebird-monitoring protocol for Mexico.
Intensive bird and habitat monitoring in the Santuario Tortuguero Playa Ceuta Natural Protected Area and Sistema Lagunar Ceuta Ramsar Site
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
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
Project Description Bahía de Ceuta is an important coastal wetland in northwestern Mexico. Located in the southeastern part of the bay is an abandoned salt mine (~150 ha), which is used as a breeding site for at least five species of shorebirds, including Snowy Plover (100 pairs) and Least Tern (300 pairs), both of which
Project Description Many species of birds, including species of conservation concern, migrate to the “Mexican Monsoon Region” to undergo molt; however, virtually nothing is known about these birds during the molting period. In order to investigate the ecology of these molt-migrants and identify critical habitat requirements for molting, IBP undertook a one-year pilot study, the
Distribution, Abundance, and Reproductive Status of the Mexican Duck on the Sonoran and Sinaloan Coasts
Project Description The increase in agricultural development in Sinaloa and Sonora in recent decades has caused important changes in habitats where the primary vegetation was originally lowland forest. The hydro-agricultural infrastructure, such as wells, dikes, and drains has supported the emergence of new niches that bird species are taking advantage of in both states. Despite
The 2008 Veracruz Model: An Innovative Approach of Training, Stewardship, and Capacity Building for Wetland Conservation in Mexico
Project Description Since 1996, the Arizona Game and Fish Department has partnered with various wetland organizations and scientists from the United States, Canada, and Mexico, and the Ramsar Convention, to offer training opportunities for wetland managers in Mexico. On February 4-17, 2008, the 10th Wetlands Training Course will take place in the State of Sinaloa,
