RESEARCH, MANAGEMENT, and MONITORING
Our involvement in research and management varies from assisting university research to individual nest studies (such as bald eagle nest studies in the 1980s), to long term management programs such as peregrine falcon reintroduction in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. We also encourage citizen science, and can provide information for what individuals can do to help wildlife in their own back yards.
We work with students from Central Michigan University to set up research projects in animal behavior classes, and monitor 30 to 40 nest boxes at Little Swamp Sanctuary. All research, management, and monitoring is done to benefit the species involved.
