A Day of Birding for Conservation
New Jersey Audubon’s World Series of Birding
May 9, 2020
12am to 11:59pm
Another rewarding World Series of Birding!
On Saturday May 9 – the coldest May day in recent memory – The Marshketeers gave up sleep and braved the weather to spend 24 hours birding for conservation. The team closed the day with 132 species – including the Eastern Kingbird, this year’s bonus bird – and claimed Swarovski’s Carbon Footprint Cup, birding exclusively by carbon-neutral means. But the birds were the real winners: through the generous support of people like you, The Marshketeers raised $5,556 for The Wetlands Institute’s coastal bird research and conservation programs.
Thank you to all who supported the 2020 Marshketeers, our mission, and the Coastal Birds Studies Program at the Institute.
