This is used to improve site protection and ecological status. Projects include:
• Daily data collection via standardized point count methods and transect surveys in order to observe accurate temporal comparisons.
• Study of the nesting behavior with the use of camera traps.
• Caring for injured birds before releasing them back into the wild.
