Wood Stork Monitoring PDF Print E-mail

Duval Audubon Society has been partnering with the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens for a number of years; monitoring and reporting on a large Wood Stork colony located inside the Africa Exhibit each breeding season. In 2005, Kevin and Marie Dailey joined the team of volunteers working with the Zoo's Curator of Birds, Donna Bear-Hull.  However, Kevin and Marie have indicated that they will not be able to continue monitoring in 2009.  Please help us fill their shoes in this wonderful partnership between Duval Audubon and the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens.  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 PDF Print E-mail

There are several volunteer shorebird monitoring programs 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. 

If you are interested in being a part of the Florida Shorebird Alliance, please contact Naomi Avissar with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
