A Note from Matt Reiter about the exciting news in Panama:
“Since 2011 Point Blue Conservation Science has been working closely with Panama Audubon to establish a research and monitoring program for shorebirds in the Upper Bay of Panama which rely on the mangrove wetland backed tidal flats for winter and migration. As part of the Migratory Shorebird Project these surveys will provide essential data to identify conservation priority areas along the rapidly developing coastline of Panama and consequently can help guide climate smart conservation and development. We will continue to provide the needed scientific support to help our international partners mitigate the impacts of rapid environmental change on this important coastal wetland ecosystem.”
