Challenge

Rocky Point Bird Observatory needs partners to ensure that our avian monitoring projects continue to protect migratory birds and the places that are critical to their survival. Given the alarming, large-scale decline in bird populations and the loss, fragmentation and degradation of native habitats, the need for rigorous bird monitoring programs is greater than ever.

Solution

Rocky Point Bird Observatory seeks to influence and inform conservation and ecological management practices for migratory birds in western North America through monitoring, scientific research and public education. . RPBO tracks the migration of Canada's birds in the spring and fall each year, adding to our knowledge of population trends, demographics, phenology, and providing other essential information about the species that pass through each location.

Long-Term Impact

Research has proven that survivorship, productivity and health of bird populations are accurate indicators of environmental change. RPBO is the only organization conducting long-term monitoring of bird populations in this region and is a vital link in the research that allows scientists to measure the health of, and changes to, our environment. This information is used by governments, environmental organizations, scientists, and others to direct our collective actions.
