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.

Copper River Stewardship Program- Oh what a grand ol’ time!

From my previous trips to Dusky Camp (Dusky Canada Goose base camp) it was filled with contained laughter. You only heard it at breakfast, dinner, and a little bit in the weather ports before going to bed. In addition, it seemed contained because the population...

A Murre-aculous Success

I can recall the first time seeing the common murres at Yaquina Head. I remember going on my way to the porch of the lighthouse, wondering what that loud noise was. What was all the ruckus? I never would've imagined seeing thousands of seabirds...

Looking Forward to the Future
