Principal investigators from the North Atlantic LCC-supported Saltmarsh Habitat and Avian Research Program (SHARP) will share findings from their monumental effort to characterize threats to tidal-marsh dependent bird species along the entire mid-Atlantic coastline, involving than 1,500 sampling sites for estimating bird abundance and plant community composition, 22 sampling sites for estimating species fecundity and survival, 260 sampling sites for measuring salt marsh elevation, and 130 sampling sites for baseline plant surveys to measure marsh migration.

The presentation will include information on population estimates, trends, and viability for saltmarsh sparrow and other tidal-marsh dependent species in the Northeast region.
