Summary
Abstract: The Seabird Ecological Assessment Network coordinates a beached bird
monitoring effort. The line segments represent the estimated beach segments
monitored by SEANET volunteers. There are tabular records for each monitoring
visit to a beach. Data collected include observations of beach conditions,
beached birds found, and live birds observed. When possible the beached birds
are examined by trained ... View entire text

Purpose: SEANET Beached Bird Survey Data are used by seabird researchers,
conservation managers, and analysts to identify areas of high seabird
mortality. Threats to seabirds are determined through observations and
pathological findings. There is potential for using seabirds as indicators of
coastal and marine health.

Quality Locations are accurate to either the NOS80K: Medium Resolution Digital Vector
U.S. Shoreline or the recorded volunteer location with a handheld GPS.
Attribute data are collected by volunteer/citizen science effort and quality
control is performed (through deductive estimate). No quantification
assessment has been performed. All beaches monitored from October 2002-
December 2004 are mapped.
