How do you address threats to salt marsh birds across an entire region? Think big
The Salt Marsh Habitat Avian Research Program, a monumental collaborative effort to assess risks and set response priorities for tidal-marsh dependent bird species from Virginia to maritime Canada, wraps up its fifth field season this summer.

This link allows users to select the metrics that are most important to their objectives in choosing where to conduct field surveys of road-stream crossings to assess aquatic organism passage for particular groups of species, average slope at crossings, or for other considerations.

This tool allows users to view aquatic barriers (dams, road-stream crossings) by the relative gain in ecological value if they were removed. Users start with a consensus map of anadromous fish priorities, which was developed based on stakeholder input as part of the North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative (NAACC). Beyond the consensus results, interested users can create their own scenarios by filtering input barriers to limit the analysis to a given state or watershed, changing the weights of metrics according to their importance to the analysis objectives (e.g. length of upstream network connected, number of diadromous fish present, etc.) and by modeling the removal of up to 10 barriers.

Partners share updates from studies investigating urgent threats that sea level rise poses to coastal marshes
At the second annual Tidal Marsh Resilience Workshop, partners investigating impacts to coastal systems in the wake of Hurricane Sandy met to share findings, and align efforts to deliver results to coastal decision makers.

Project Development of a Rapid Assessment Protocol for Aquatic Passability of Tidally Influenced Road-Stream Crossings
There is growing interest among conservation practitioners to have a method to assess tidally influenced crossings for their potential as barriers to aquatic organism passage. Protocols designed for freshwater streams will not adequately address the passage challenges of bi-directional flow and widely variable depth and velocity of tidally influenced systems. Diadromous and coastal fish must be able to overcome the enhanced water velocities associated with tidal restrictions to reach upstream spawning habitat. This project will build on the existing North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative's protocol, database and scoring procedures to extend the applicability of this region-wide program to road-stream crossings in tidally influenced settings.

Project iPlover: Piping plover habitat suitability in a changing climate
Designed by scientists to simplify consistent data collection and management, the iPlover smartphone application gives trained resource managers an easy-to-use platform where they can collect and share data about coastal habitat utilization across a diverse community of field technicians, scientists, and managers. With the click of a button, users can contribute biological and geomorphological data to regional models designed to forecast the habitat outlook for piping plover, and other species that depend upon sandy beach habitat.
