A Successful Project Reduces Human Disturbance Of Canadian Shorebirds

Bird Studies Canada writes about the success of the Space to Roost Project whose goal has been to reduce human disturbance to shorebirds at high-tide roost sites in Nova Scotia’s Minas Basin.

Compared to what we observed in 2016, in 2017:
• Fewer shorebirds were disturbed by people at both Shorebird Resting Beaches;
• 100% of anglers respected the Shorebird Resting Beaches;
• The proportion of people interviewed who knew the importance of the area to shorebirds increased from 47% to 78%;
• The proportion of beachgoers staying on the dyke above the Guzzle Shorebird Resting Beach increased.
