California Central Coast Black Oystercatcher Monitoring Project
This project’s purpose is to assess the Black Oystercatcher (BLOY) as a Federal Species of Concern by monitoring BLOY habitat and BLOY reproductive success. The monitoring project recruits citizen science volunteers to assist in the collection and timely reporting of observational data from March through September. The project is coordinated by Audubon California in partnership with the US Fish and Wildlife Service and in conjunction with the US Bureau of Land Management's California Coastal National Monument (CCNM). The project includes collaboration with CA State Parks and the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History.
