Iceberg Point Project
The Iceberg Point Project monitors marine bird abundance and breeding success in the nearshore coastal waters of the south end of Lopez. Notable marine bird declines have been reported in a twenty-year data comparison in the Salish Sea, which makes continued research on marine bird population trends increasingly important to future conservation actions. Iceberg Point is also an important foraging area for the threatened Marbled Murrelet, and future data may be able to show a connection between prey fish and bird distributions. The breeding survey will identify important small islands on which birds raise their young, and will begin in spring of 2012.
