Citizen Science Activities:
Monitoring at Jacksonville Zoo Duval Audubon Society has been partnering with the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens for a number of years. Currently there are three different projects/opportunities for monitoring on Zoo Grounds, and they can be done anytime the Zoo is open. (Wood Stork monitoring, LakeWatch aquatic bird monitoring, and general eBirding using the Zoo's hotspots) The monitoring is relatively easy, fun, enjoyable, and gets you in the zoo for free! They have opportunities for 1-2 hour shifts during the week and on Saturday mornings during the breeding season. Adult and youth volunteers are welcome!
Shorebird Monitoring There are several volunteer shorebird monitoring programs in our area available through the Florida Shorebird Alliance - doing bird surveys, monitoring Least tern rooftop nests, bird stewards and beach-nesting bird monitoring. All are an important step for shorebird awareness and protection in our area! It is also a good opportunity for folks to learn more about shorebirds and contribute to our community and our citizen science effort.
