GLIN==> New shorebird management listserve


A shorebird management listserve is now available where questions, comments or discussion are posted, and where professional wildlife managers can seek and share information from each other or other participants in the listserve. But beyond this, the listserve will be monitored, and where prudent advice is not forthcoming, the monitor would route  questions to qualified shorebird management experts.  Brian Harrington, Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences, has secured the services of numerous shorebird management experts who will fulfill this role.  Of course, we urge
subscribers to provide comments on any query.  There is a lot of collective wisdom about wetland biology, wetland management, and shorebird biology which if brought together, will provide a powerful resource to managers, and powerful benefits to shore and other birds. We think a professional listserve will help bring this "collective wisdom" to bear on management applications.  Specifically, the listserve will provide users with:

      -  a forum to discuss approaches to managing shorebird habitats
      -  information on shorebird management resources
      -  answers to specific, regional management questions
      -  a forum to discuss regional-scale projects
      -  technical advice on monitoring shorebirds

The listserve is a cooperative effort of partners of the U.S. and Canadian Shorebird Conservation Plans and is maintained by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Messages and responses will be archived for future syntheses and analyses.  Information on the conservation plans can be found at:
