Shorebirds on the Move

In light of the current situation around the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, and in an abundance of caution, all in-person events, including Conservation Volunteers, are postponed for the remainder of 2020. Watch this space for more information.

Shorebirds on the Move
Microsoft Teams Meeting
Tuesday, September 22, 2020
Noon CDT


Join the Nature Conservancy of Canada, Important Bird Areas Manitoba and Westman Naturalists to learn about shorebird conservation in Manitoba.

Shorebirds are a diverse group of migratory birds, a few species of which have some of the longest migration distances in the feathered world. This group of birds is strongly associated with shallow water habitats, like those found on beaches or shorelines of lakes, shallow wetlands and in flooded fields or grasslands, where they forage for food in the mud and sand. The migratory route that passes through the Prairies is sometimes referred to as the central flyway.

Learn how International Shorebird Survey volunteers count large flocks of shorebirds, and listen to migratory stories that were tracked through the Motus Wildife Tracking System!
