A Day of Birding for Conservation
New Jersey Audubon’s World Series of Birding
May 11, 2019
12am to 11:59pm
The Marshketeers did really well anchored in the tower for this annual 24 hr marathon of birding raising $4711 for coastal bird studies.
The Marshketeers were able to identify 73 bird species, including this years’ “bonus bird” the Red Knot from The Wetlands Institute’s iconic tower. While being in one place is much more challenging then traversing the county; being at The Wetlands Institute reminds us that it was here we began the important avian research and conservation in our area. It’s here at The Wetlands Institute that, like the Marshketeers, we continue to challenge ourselves with the important work we do.
Thank you for supporting the 2019 Marshketeers, our mission, and the Coastal Birds Studies Program at the Institute.
