The Bird Migration Explorer (www.birdmigrationexplorer.org) is a state-of-the-art digital platform that reveals migration data consolidated for more than 450 bird species that breed in the United States and Canada and migrate within the Western Hemisphere. The free, interactive platform, available in English and Spanish, reveals the most complete understanding of the places migratory birds use across the full annual cycle, connections among places across the hemisphere, and the hazards they face. The Bird Migration Explorer was created by Audubon, nine partner organizations and hundreds of researchers and institutions from across the globe. Join us for a demonstration of the Explorer to learn about the migratory birds of Rowe Sanctuary and what you can do to protect them.
