About This Project
Manomet's International Shorebird Survey (ISS) is a Citizen Science project designed to gather information on shorebirds and the habitats they use. Hundreds of shorebird enthusiasts across the Western Hemisphere conduct surveys during migration. Data collected are fundamental for population size and trend analyses, documenting wide-scale shorebird population declines. Our goal is to increase the number of volunteers submitting surveys by 20%, leading to better data and analysis.
