Shorebird Surveys

Many Joint Coastal Permit (JCP)-authorized beach projects require pre- and post-construction shorebird monitoring, both for breeding native shorebirds, as well as overwintering migratory shorebirds protected under the federal Endangered Species Act. Ardea staff have experience volunteering for the Florida Shorebird Association, as well as conducting project-related beach-nesting shorebird surveys and wintertime surveys for piping plovers and red knots.
