Through the eyes of the interns: E.B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge

During the summer of 2014, interns at Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey focused on monitoring piping plover and other beach nesting birds, as well as conducting salt marsh inventories and forest surveys.  Along the way, interns also banded Canada geese, wood ducks, salt marsh sparrows and ospreys, collected tiger beetles, and entered and proofed lots of data!  Much of the data collected by interns this summer will serve as a baseline for evaluating Hurricane Sandy resilience restoration and enhancement work that will begin next year.  The accompanying video was put together by the 2014 intern staff to document this work. Enjoy!
