By empowering stakeholders through science, Manomet is working with partners to make a world where ecosystems and human communities thrive.
Since Manomet’s beginnings as a bird banding operation in 1969, its science and research have expanded to focus on ecosystem management and resilience, shorebird conservation, and educating tomorrow’s leaders about the importance of the natural world. Diversity, science, and climate change are the fundamental principles driving Manomet’s work today.
With our partners, we are improving and restoring habitat for declining species and recommending food production practices that will reduce impacts on the species we are working to restore and our broader natural environment. We are teaching children how the natural world is changing around them.
Participants gain a much greater appreciation for the fascinating biology and declining populations of these amazing birds, and learned that they can help, while also fostering a diversity of wildlife on their land.

I can’t control climate but I can control what trees we grow for the future. If I can make that better, that means climate will have less of a change. We’ll have a more resilient forest that way.

Without dedicated survey participants, and without Manomet’s long-standing leadership, there would be no national shorebird monitoring program in the United States.
