Are you a beach lover who enjoys observing nature? Audubon wants you to help track banded red knots, migratory birds that travel to the Atlantic Coast every spring.
Tracking the birds is important to understand their migration patterns and the effects of climate change on their habitats. You can become a volunteer citizen scientist with just a few simple steps.
How You Can Help
Audubon is looking for volunteers to help track the banded red knots. Here’s what you can do to help:
1. Learn about the birds: Make sure you know all about these birds before you start tracking them.
2. Look for banded birds: Keep an eye out for banded birds on the beach.
3. Take pictures: If you see any banded birds, take pictures of them.
4. Report your findings: Once you’ve taken pictures of any banded birds, report your findings to Audubon.
Why It Matters
Tracking the banded red knots is important to understand their migration patterns and the effects of climate change on their habitats. By tracking the birds, we can get a better idea of how climate change is affecting our environment.
