San Diego Audubon Ternwatchers

Least Tern235x250

Volunteers needed!

This spring, a dedicated team of San Diego Audubon volunteers will be working to protect nesting California least tern by monitoring predators visiting the birds’ colonies in Mission Bay. And by “predators,” we mostly mean raptors, ravens, gulls, and other avian species.

We are seeking birders, biologists, or anyone interested in learning about citizen science monitoring efforts to protect endangered species.  San Diego Audubon will offer two Ternwatcher trainings in March and April. Following completion of their training, volunteers will be responsible to sign-up for regularly scheduled shifts throughout the spring and early summer to maximize the time that San Diego Audubon will have eyes on the nests. Once at the site, volunteers will collect data about activities at the tern colonies, and will be responsible for contacting predator control personnel in the event of any predator sightings. San Diego Audubon will provide all materials, including binoculars for use during the program and Ternwatcher T-shirts to keep.
