The Stranded Birds Monitoring Network

Supported by the French Agency for Marine Protected Areas, LPO coordinated the gathering of information and data analysis on stranded birds reported on the Atlantic coast from January to March 2014. More than 50 000 seabirds were stranded on the European coast in just a few weeks (mainly Atlantic Puffin and Common Murre). Faced with this catastrophic event, the coastal network of local associations attended and a very large number of volunteers participated in 7 national counts during weekends.
