In response to social distancing and shelter-in-place rules for Alabama during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are offering free online courses as a public service to help folks continue to learn about the birds they love!

Please make sure to comply with all state and local social-distancing regulations. See our full COVID-19 statement here.

Join our Coastal Biologist Olivia Morpeth for this course all about snowy plovers, one of our top species of concern we monitor on the Alabama coast. Learn about their preferred breeding habitats as well as the life stages of the chicks, difficulties that they face including human disturbance, predators, and weather events, and what we’re doing on the coast to help protect the species.
