We currently have 3 projects on Martha’s Vineyard:  coastal river otter (Lontra canadensis) mapping and monitoring, beach-nesting bird monitoring and protection (April – August), and in summer 2013 we will be completing surveys to map and monitor Belted Kingfisher (Ceryle alcyon) nest cavities and swallow colonies in cliffs and sandy banks around the island.  You can learn more about these projects by visiting their pages via the links to the right on this page.

Landowners – if you have otter or kingfisher activity on your property and would like to be included in our mapping projects, please contact us using the contact form, email, or telephone number here.

We enjoy working with volunteers and young scientists in the field.  If you would like to volunteer with us, please visit our Volunteer Opportunities page.
