The Squamish Environment Society (SES) Bird Watch Program has been gathering data every month since 1991. The massive amount of data has never been analyzed until now. Quest University Professor, Kimberly Dawe, has signed a Letter of Agreement with SES to begin the analysis of this data.
The intent is to begin a long-term project that will lead to an understanding of the impact of birds and climate on our Squamish Estuary. Professor Dawe will work with her Quest students in a review of the data. So many questions will be generated as this project progresses.
Thanks to Chris Dale and Carl Halvorson and the dedicated birders who continue to generate this important data every month, regardless of the weather.
Stay tuned for furture updates.
