National Audubon Society

The National Audubon Society protects birds and the places they need to live across the Americas through the use of science, advocacy, education, conservation action in the field. Audubon’s long-running community science programs, including the Christmas Bird Count that has been running for over 100 years, provide vital information on bird population trends and emerging threats. The science team of the The National Audubon Society uses cutting-edge science to assess the status and trends of bird populations, identify key threats, and report and assess the impacts of conservation actions.

What is our role in CORESCAM?

Members of the science team of The National Audubon Society analyze bird population trends in the Caribbean region using the Christmas Bird Count data, assess the impacts of extreme weather on birds, and explore relations between migratory birds and the weather. The population trends of the Christmas count, migratory movements in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean, and the responses of birds to extreme climatic changes are analyzed.
