Voluntourism Opportunities Working on Shorebirds and Seabirds in the Bahamas
Wednesday March 7, 2018 |
Join our sailing expedition to the northern Bahamas for a week to survey shorebirds and seabirds and remove invasive plants. We will survey two of the world’s largest Audubon Shearwater colonies, visit the world’s first and most beautiful Land and Sea Park in the Exuma Cays as well as the Joulter Cays (Piping Plover winter habitat) and Andros. A few slots are available at cost on the boat for 2 one-week trips. Both trips have ample opportunities to enjoy the beaches, islands, reefs, and marine life of the Bahamas while helping conserve the birds and other wildlife.
Extended text: “BirdsCaribbean, The Bahamas National Trust and Conservian are running two weeks of surveys for beach nesting birds including shorebirds and seabirds. The dates are May 6-13 (Andros shorebird focus) and May 13-20 (seabird and shorebird). We have a few spots on the boat that are available at cost. We need volunteers to help count birds and remove invasive plants from coastal habitats. This year we are visiting the Exuma Cays including two of the world’s largest Audubon’s Shearwater colonies and the world’s first and most beautiful Land and Sea Park. We are also going to the Joulter Cays and Andros for a week to some of the most important Piping Plover winter habitat. Both trips have ample opportunities to enjoy the beaches, islands, reefs, and marine life of the Bahamas while helping conserve the birds and other wildlife. The trip is being led by Margo Zdravkovic of Conservian and Will Mackin with assistance from Jennifer Wheeler, Lisa Sorenson, and The Bahamas National Trust.
