Located at the shortest overland route between the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean, Mexico's Tehuantepec Isthmus is a globally important migratory corridor for many terrestrial bird species. In recent years, extensive wind energy development has occurred in the plains bordering these wetlands, directly along the migratory flyway.

Specifically, students will learn: 1 the systematics, morphology, physiology, and ecology of local species; 2 field identification and research techniques for studies of populations, behavior, diet, energetics, and other topics; 3 relationship of tides and other environmental variables to animal distribution and abundance; and 4 the status and conservation of local species.
Recent studies have shown that populations of many marine birds and mammals are declining in the Salish Sea. Therefore, during the latter part of the course, participants conduct independent research on the ecology of local species and communities. Projects may cover a variety of topics and are designed to gather data pertinent to pressing conservation problems. Working in small teams, students will design the project, collect and analyze field data, and then present their results and discuss your findings in a scientific-format paper and presentation.
Examples of recent projects include: effects of tidal currents on Harbor Seal haul-out patterns; effects of boat disturbance on marine bird behavior; prey availability and selection of Black Oystercatchers; inter-annual variation in abundance and distribution of auklets, seals, and porpoises; and feeding behavior of Great Blue Herons.
