Bird ID and CoastLife Citizen Science training
About the event
Sandwich & Pegwell Bay NNR is host to very special and unique habitats and the wildlife associated with it. The site is very popular with visitors, but an increase in recreational activities has had an impact on wildlife.
We want to improve the way we protect our shoreline birds and to do so we need to better understand how human activities affect bird behaviour and populations. We have started an exciting long-term study to survey these human activities and bird responses. This will enable us to move forward with protecting the area and with finding ways for people and wildlife to co-exist.
We are looking for nature lovers who would like to make a real difference to wildlife by monitoring birds and visitor impacts on the reserve.
This training session will consist of a classroom workshop focusing on bird identification and survey methodology and a trip to Pegwell Bay to put your new skills into practice.
