Please make a gift to support our Shorebird Research today!

Our conservation efforts depend upon sound Research.  Throughout the world, shorebirds are declining at a rapid rate.  Over the past 12 years, New Jersey Audubon's research team has documented significant declines in the ability of shorebirds staging in the Delaware Bay, like the Semipalmated Sandpiper, to acquire the food resources necessary to complete their migration to breeding grounds in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regionss.  Their work in northern South America, where many shorebird species spend the winter, has uncovered serious problems facing shorebirds, such as hunting and habitat loss, which are having dramatic affects on populations.
