Interested in helping local wildlife?

Join TERNWATCHERS, a volunteer predator-monitoring program sponsored by the San Diego Audubon Society.

Volunteers monitor the nesting sites of the endangered California Least Tern, and help promote productive nesting seasons by keeping eyes on nests and documenting observed predators in Mission Bay.

We are excited train the next cohort volunteers! This program runs from April to September and you make your own hours!

The next training takes place over 2 days, May 3 and May 4 including a required virtual session and an optional in person Survey123 session.

Show your interest here or by emailing Cristina Santa Maria at
