COUNT WATERBIRDS IN THE CARIBBEAN
Monday 17th October 2011

Do you know of a pond, mangrove swamp, or marsh nearby with waterbirds on it? If yes, we invite you to participate in the second session of the Caribbean Waterbird Census (CWC) in Antigua, and help us to save waterbirds and their habitats and celebrate International Migratory Bird Day.
 
The goal of the Caribbean Waterbird Census program is to learn more about the distribution, status, and abundance of waterbirds in the Caribbean to improve our conservation planning and management of these beautiful birds and their habitats. The next official census period will be from October 10th to October 24th 2011. These dates include International Migratory Bird Day on October 20th so it will form a part of our celebrations.

The areas that are officially part of the census are Flashes, McKinnon’s Pond, Parham Swamp, Christian Cove, Valley Church Pond. However, if you live near a pond or other wetland you are welcome to include it.
 
There will be practice sessions for learning the CWC methods at McKinnon’s Pond (meet by Casino Rivera) at the dates and times shown below. For further information please contact Andrea Otto at 728-7956, e-mail: andreasheres@gmail.com.
