BC Beached Bird Survey

British Columbia Beached Bird Survey

Did you know that seabirds are good indicators of marine ecosystem health? They can serve as an early detection system for changes in ocean conditions, and events such as oil spills. With the escalation of shipping traffic, fishing effort, and development around British Columbia's coastal environments, collecting baseline information on the causes and rates of seabird mortality has become increasingly important.

Through the British Columbia Beached Bird Survey, Bird Studies Canada aims to engage BC citizens in crucial environmental monitoring and stewardship. The information collected by volunteers is used to assess the causes and levels of seabird mortality.
