Coastal Bird Cruise and Seabird Exploration in the Bahamas

Does it sound exciting to cruise the Abacos for a week documenting shearwaters, tropicbirds, terns, plovers, oystercatchers, and rails?

From April 23-May 21, Conservian, The Bahamas National Trust, and BirdsCaribbean are operating a coastal bird cruise. Tickets are available at cost ($1250 per week including food and a bunk on the boat) in one-week stints. During each week, a section of the Northern Bahamas will be surveyed by teams with a beautiful sailing research vessel as base-camp. Participants will help with surveys by walking beaches and counting birds. During the last 2 weeks, we will be banding seabirds as part of the trip.

Details including an itinerary can be found at www.coastalbird.org.

Please forward this information to anyone who you think would be excited about this trip, including yourselves.
