Population Status and Ecology of North Pacific Shorebirds

Alaska is widely recognized as a global center for shorebirds. Ninety percent of the migratory species in the Western Hemisphere have breeding populations in Alaska. The North Pacific hosts one-third of the world's shorebird fauna. Coastal habitats are critical during some phase of their annual cycle, particularly during the nonbreeding period. Many coastal areas are being altered at an alarming rate. Effective conservation requires an understanding of population dynamics and habitat requirements. This is being done in cooperation with numerous local, national, and international shorebird interests.
