Celebrating Wetlands Day with Bird Census
Estuario participated in an aquatic bird census as part of celebrations for Wetlands Day, on Tuesday, February 2 2021.
The census was performed throughout San Juan Bay Estuary wetlands near Los Corozos lagoon, San Jose lagoon, Suarez Channel and Torrecilla lagoon. These ecosystems harbor great diversity of aquatic birds and other species.
We continue performing bird census in the SJBE ecosystems in a limited fashion. We hope to be able to summon our volunteers and citizen scientists soon.
