Seabirds and Citizen Science


Seabird observers comb local beaches looking for dead seabirds to document and add to a database in order to monitor the environmental health of the seashore. Students from Beaverton Health and Science High School worked with the Coastal Observer and Seabird Survey Team to learn about citizen science in their backyard.
