Celebrating Birds

 

In 2012, EFTA began building partnerships with governement agencices and non-profirs to provide shorebird conservation internship experiences for Latinos. This internship program addresses EFTA’s desire to increase diversity within natural resources while conducting long-term bird conservation studies. This internship program was formerly known as Celebrate Shorebirds, but since then it has evolved and expanded. Although the past internship focused on shorebird and avian conservation, we welcome and have integrated any nature-based educational programs.

Snapshot Profile: A Novice Traveler

Last week, we were all sad to see one of the first co-workers to depart for the season. With hugs and farewells, I knew that it would not be the last time I would see Mirna Borrego Lazalde. Mirna joined the Wildlife and Ecology Department...

Summer has arrived, and so have the baby birds!

Finally, Salinas is getting some sunny and warm weather. It now officially feels like summer. Last week, I received a text message from my supervisor telling me that the Black Oystercatchers on Cannery Row in Monterey have hatched. It is a very exciting time of...
