Threatened eider database

Project Summary
Project CodeALCC2010-10
Project Lead(s) ABR, Inc.
Arctic Landscape Conservation Cooperative
DescriptionTwo species of eiders, Spectacled (Somateria fischeri) and Steller's (Polysticta stelleri), are threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. There is no comprehensive source of survey effort and bird distribution information for these species. These data are needed for the environmental reviews required under ESA and NEPA, and as a baseline for conservation planning. In order to provide a single source for all known eider distribution data and survey efforts, the Arctic LCC is supporting the development of a database that synthesizes existing information and will serve as a repository for eider distribution and survey information collected in the future.
