Introduction

The Chesapeake Bay supports one of the largest Osprey breeding populations in the world. Ospreys provide an opportunity to educate the public about migration and the many species that utilize the Chesapeake Bay on a seasonal basis because they migrate between breeding areas in the Chesapeake Bay and wintering areas in South America

This project seeks to educate the public about the migration and wintering of Chesapeake Bay osprey.

Project Partners

This project is co-sponsored by The Center for Conservation Biology and the Virginia Aquarium.
