The San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory is dedicated to the conservation of birds and their habitats through science…More and outreach. Since its beginning in 1981, SFBBO has been an authority on the birds that rely on the San Francisco Bay and its surrounding environments. The San Francisco Bay Area is an important area for birds during any time of the year – the Bay provides breeding habitat, migration stopover habitat and wintering habitat for millions of birds.
Numerous programs are offered, examples are the science programs--consisting of the Waterbird and Landbird Programs. Biologists from the observatory collect crucial data that shape our understanding of the population ecology and conservation of Bay Area birds. Collected for nearly 30 years, these data are especially effective in tracking trends in local bird populations and helping to guide management practices in the Bay Area to the benefit of native birds. Another program is its Outreach Program, which fosters awareness among Bay Area residents of the importance of birds, their habitats, and their conservation to our community. Through education, internships and volunteer citizen scientists, San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory has been active in habitat and bird population conservation.
