For Earth Day, airport launches online nest counter for endangered California Least Tern

In honor of Earth Day 2011 (April 22), SDIA today launched an online counter that tracks the number of California Least Tern nests in the airport’s protected Least Tern habitat. Visit the counter at:

SDIA Least Tern Nest Counter

The California Least Tern is a federally listed endangered seabird species that nests in protected areas on the airfield. The Airport Authority works cooperatively with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Port of San Diego, the San Diego Zoological Society’s Center for Reproduction of Endangered Species and the U.S. Navy to protect the Least Tern and its habitat areas around San Diego Bay.

The Least Tern nesting season at SDIA runs from approximately April to September each year. At launch, the online counter reads “0” – as no nests have been reported at SDIA yet this season. But the counter will be updated on a weekly basis as nest counts at SDIA are recorded through the season.
