Mystic Restaurants Supports Awareness of Osprey Nation 2015 Mystic CT

 

Osprey Nation is Connecticut Audubon Society’s citizen science partnership, launched in the summer of 2014, to monitor the health of our state’s Ospreys. The goal of Osprey Nation is to create a long-term record of data that will give the conservation community a better understanding of the health of Connecticut’s Osprey population.

In its first season, Osprey Nation’s 100-plus stewards located 414 nests in five counties and 42 towns, and monitored 174 of those nests. We plotted all the nests and the data submitted by the stewards on the map below. Osprey Nation stewards confirmed that 78 young Ospreys were successfully fledged in 2014, a number that we’re confident is low.

The project is off to a great start but we still need your help and expertise!

If you live near an active Osprey nest and can volunteer about an hour or two a month to be part of our network of stewards, email us at Osprey@Ctaudubon.org.
