join our Post Irmaria
bird count

Wildlife in the Territory have been impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria (IrMaria) too!

We have combined two easy and fun projects to get families involved in helping our wildlife populations:

  1. Create upcycled bird feeders, and
  2. Participate in a post-IrMaria bird count to help the birds, the environment and researchers.
All that is needed to make an upcycled birdfeeder is a clean plastic water bottle, a sharp blade (to cut into the plastic with), chopsticks or a small treebranch, string or ribbon and birdseed.

It's easy to participate.

With everyday single-use trash, create a homemade birdfeeder. Simple instructions can be found here and birdseed can be purchased at a low cost at locations around the island.

After your birdfeeder is complete, sit back and enjoy watching them feast. While you're at it, take a picture of the birds as they use your new upcycled bird feeder and upload it into our bird count survey. With your help, we can more effectively monitor bird populations post-hurricanes.

The survey can be easily accessed using this QR Code.
