Alaska hosts international shorebird expedition

30-Sep-2004

Shorebird ecologists and conservationists from Sweden, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, and the United States gathered on the Yukon Delta refuge's Bering Sea coastline from 2-13 September 2004.

The expedition enabled the group to get acquainted with shorebird habitats across the Delta and to evaluate logistic requirements, study sites, and field protocols. These preparations will maximize the efficiency of a major international expedition to Beringia in 2005.
