HELP COASTAL BIRD CONSERVATION PROTECT COASTAL BIRDS FROM THE BP OIL SPILL!
  1. The CBC is on the ground NOW in coastal Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida documenting oil impacts in many remote areas.
  2. Coastal birds are now nesting throughout the Gulf and are fixed to breeding territories and therefore unable to avoid oil impacted areas.
  3. The CBC is operating as "first responders" to this situation by providing locations of oiled shorebirds to wildlife rescue and rehabilitation groups.
  4. The CBC is providing past/current data to federal/state agencies to ensure protection of critical nesting sites is implemented, wherever possible.

The Coastal Bird Conservation Program (CBCP) is a field-based, science-driven program to enhance the conservation of coastal birds in the western hemisphere. The aim of the CBCP is to increase conservation of North America’s most threatened species of coastal birds and their habitats throughout breeding and non-breeding ranges in the Western Hemisphere. The CBCP works with every interested partner to monitor/protect/stabilize/restore threatened beach-nesting and migrating bird populations, through standardized, proven methods of management and protection. On the broader scale, implementation of conservation actions for shorebirds provide benefits for the entire barrier beach and coastal ecosystem.
