Bird Count

Wildlife in the Territory have been impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria (IrMaria) too! We have combined two easy and fun projects to get families involved in helping our wildlife populations:

  1. Create upcycled bird feeders, and
  2. Participate in a post-IrMaria bird count to help the birds, the environment and researchers.
