Tracking and tagging migrating birds and butterflies through the Motus program

December 10, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm EST

Find out about the Motus Wildlife Tracking System — a new research network that is revolutionizing the study of winged migration by tracking the movements of birds, bats, and even large insects that have been fitted with tiny radio transmitters (nanotags). The Motus network is dramatically increasing our understanding of the phenomenon of migration. Learn how NH Audubon is one of a team of many, expanding the global Motus network into new regions in the Northeast, starting with receiving towers installed in northern NH and the Mondanock region.

Proceeds support NH Audubon’s programs, including the Motus Project

It is an independent statewide membership organization with four nature centers throughout the state. Expert educators give programs to children, families, and adults at centers and in schools. Staff biologists and volunteers conduct bird conservation efforts such as the Peregrine Falcon restoration. NH Audubon protects thousands of acres of wildlife habitat and is a voice for sound public policy on environmental issues.
