More About COASST Beached Bird Training

Help make a difference for the environment by collecting beached bird data for the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST). COASST is a citizen science program involving participants in the collection of high quality data used in natural resource management and conservation decisions.

Beached bird participants systematically count and identify bird carcasses to help determine baselines for seabird mortality along the North Pacific coast. No prior experience is necessary, just a commitment to survey a specific beach (about ¾ mile) each month.

If you are interested in participating, visit our website to learn more about our program and join us our training session.
