Targeted Species & Habitats

Iberian Seabird and Marine Mammal Monitoring Network

About this project

Iberian Seabird and Marine Mammal Monitoring Network
In this project groups of volunteer ornithologists gather along the coasts of Spain and Portugal on specific set days to study all present marine birds and mammals during a number of hours. Dates of gathering and study for each year are programmed at the beggining of the year, and volunteers organize themselves through e-mail and forums. The use of a standard methodology amongst all groups and the simultaneous presence of observers along the coasts allow to get systematic and rigurous information to analize the use of the space by different species through the year. The information gathered through this project on marine birds feeds the database of Trektellen (http://www.trektellen.org)

How can you contribute?

 

To contribute to this project it is necessary to sign into this group and to coordinate with the person in charge of the area where you are, who distributes all the volunteers along the allocated stretch of coast.

 

On the designated day, you will need a telescope of 20x and binoculars of 8-10x, and you will work at least in pairs over 3 hours, recording all the birds and cetaceans passing in front of us. You will have to record species and exact number of birds and cetaceans. You will also records sea state, wind, and visibility. Other interesting information includes behaviour of animals, relation to a vessel, distance of the sighting from the observer, etc.
