Dick Jennings, a leader in this effort, explains the increasing need for support, “The monitoring of the Vineyard osprey population, which I have been heading up for the last 10 or so years, has become a monumental task. We are in dire need of dedicated people to assist in the monitoring. When I first began to head up the census, I had 56 breeding pair to monitor which was somewhat manageable, due to our efforts, the numbers have grown every year reaching 87 pair last year.”
This program has been successful in strengthening and bringing back our island osprey population. In order to continue, we need your support! Please help the osprey by volunteering for the Martha’s Vineyard Osprey Monitoring Program.
