New York-New Jersey Baykeeper looking for volunteers to help with study
If you're a "birder" and like the beach, then the New York-New Jersey Baykeeper wants your help. Baykeeper is recruiting volunteers to take part in a study of sea birds along the beaches in the Northeast.Each volunteer will be given two miles of beach to check twice a month. They'll have to record birds they see and collect dead birds. With nearly 200 miles of shoreline in New Jersey, a number of volunteers will be needed.Never before has there been a study on Gulls, Peeps and Terns along the Jersey Shore. Following last February's oil spill in which hundreds of birds died, some say it's about time.Training sessions for volunteers begin October 1 and will take place at Sandy Hook.
