Audubon’s EagleWatch Program is one of Florida’s premier citizen science programs. The goal of EagleWatch is to gather information about Bald Eagles, active nest locations and possible disturbances or threats to nesting activities. EagleWatch started in 1992 in the Central Florida region with only 22 volunteers. Today the program is statewide, with over 200 volunteers reaching more communities each year and continuing to heighten awareness of Bald Eagles throughout the state. The data collected by volunteers is compiled to document eagle nest productivity and is used by both the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to enhance their conservation and law enforcement efforts.
Audubon EagleWatch is seeking volunteers to monitor Bald Eagle nests for the 2017-2018 breeding season. As a volunteer, you’ll be assigned to monitor one or more eagle nests in your vicinity. A new volunteer training will be held in the classroom at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary on Saturday, August 19, 2017 from 10:00am until 12:00 noon.
