Project Title & Description
Enhancing Capacity of Wetland Programs
The project will assist state, tribal, and local wetland programs nationwide with meeting conservation targets for secretive marshbirds, a key wetland function. Challenges in monitoring marshbird populations have resulted in this group being underrepresented in bird monitoring programs and in wetland programs' conservation planning which is problematic, as several species are of conservation concern. This project will integrate existing marshbird data with intensive sampling of wetland habitats to provide technical assistance to wetland programs.
