Monomoy - Steph Koch (#88)
Short name: MA_REKN
Short description: Nanotags are being placed on Red Knots on Cape Cod, MA, with the goal of learning more about important stopover sites and migration pathways.
Description: Monomoy NWR and nearby beaches on Cape Cod support large concentrations of southward migrating Red Knots (Federally-listed) on the Atlantic seaboard. This region is significant because it hosts northern-wintering (NW) and southern-wintering (SW) adults (which have different stopover ecology and likely survivorship), and juveniles. Deploying nanotags (and geolocators as part of another ongoing project) will help us learn more about how NW, SW, and junvenile birds are using stopover and wintering areas, and their migration pathways. This project will help inform management and ensure we are strategic in protecting Red Knot habitats in the right places at the right times. It will also be instrumental in our continued efforts to engage partners (Town, State, Federal, NGO) to use a collaborative approach to protecting all habitats to benefit NW, SW, and juvenile birds. This project builds on previous work and is a collaborative effort between USFWS, BOEM, Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey, and others.
