Bird Conservation Decision Support Tools (DSTs) transfer science-based information to communities who implement strategies that benefit birds and their habitats. Such DSTs link priority land management challenges and bird conservation objectives using audience-specific delivery approaches to convey the best available scientific information through synthesis and interpretation of bird monitoring data.

wegr 3 c Jim Livaudais 72 ppi 9 x 6.8In an effort to help coordinate aquatic bird monitoring and facilitate regionally based studies, Klamath Bird Observatory has compiled and posted descriptions for Important Aquatic Bird Sites within eastern Oregon, western Oregon, and northwestern California. The site descriptions include information such as water level fluctuations, land ownership, access issues, visibility constraints, and aquatic birds expected to be present. 
 
 
This project was successful thanks to contributions from many partners and funding from the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife State Wildlife Grants, Charlotte Martin Foundation, Pacific Coast Habitat Joint Venture, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.
 
 
 
Klamath Bird Observatory works with partners to develop Bird Conservation Decision Support Tools (DSTs) that transfer science-based information to communities who implement strategies that benefit birds and their habitats.  Such DSTs link priority natural resource management challenges and bird conservation objectives using audience-specific delivery approaches to convey the best available scientific information through synthesis and interpretation of bird monitoring data.
