B.C. Coastal Waterbird Survey

Submit your Data

Each month, volunteer citizen scientist along BC and Québec coastlines head to their local beaches to look for bird carcasses. It may sound grim, but the data collected during these surveys provides crucial baseline information on the causes and rates of seabird mortality. The resulting information provides a good indication of marine ecosystem health and can serve as an early detection system for changes in ocean conditions.
