Monitoring to Conserve Midwestern Birds
The Midwest Coordinated Bird Monitoring Partnership is a regional network committed to informed bird conservation decisions through enhanced coordination and exchange of monitoring information.
We are aligned to help biologists, biometricians, data managers, wildlife administrators, and citizen scientists achieve five overarching goals:
•Integration of monitoring into bird management and conservation;
•Broadening the scope of monitoring for species most at risk and for which we lack adequate information to make effective decisions;
•Coordination of programs among organizations and across spatial scales;
•Improvement of survey design, field methods, and data analysis; and
•Deployment of modern data management strategies.
Since 2009, we have been accomplishing these goals through regular workshops, an interactive website, registry of Midwest bird monitoring programs, focused working groups, and a state-of-the-art system for archiving, analyzing, and accessing data.
