Our Avian Field Research Continues
The Roberta Bondar Foundation
International Field Work
In December, our Foundation’s International Field Work continued its current research project Protecting #SpaceForBirds.
Our field observers working in the barrier islands and protected areas on Florida state’s western coast found government maintained habitats busy with various migratory birds.
The estuaries and predominantly mangrove swamp system of the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge Complex provide a vital mix of islets, tidal flats, marshes, even an upland hardwood forest.
The mix of avian species of specific interest to the Foundation’s research project, designed by Dr. Roberta Bondar, are nearctic-neotropical migratory birds, along with the flyways they travel.
The team is presently processing images and observation data for its next AMASS report.
