Delaware Shorebird Project

The Delaware Shorebird Project involves a dedicated team of scientists, local volunteers, researchers and birders working to mitigate the threat to our shorebirds. Since 1997, they have researched the populations and health of migratory shorebirds. Their research is vital to an international network that supports and directs shorebird habitat protection and management plans. You can be a part of this important work, helping to preserve this awe-inspiring natural cycle.
