With our climate changing and threats to Earth’s biodiversity, science has never been more critical than it is today.

According to the journal Science, bird populations in the U.S. and Canada have declined by nearly a third since 1970. A recent report by the United Nations found one million species, or about 12 percent of all known species on Earth, facing extinction.

For more than 50 years, Manomet has been using science to help us understand our impacts on the natural world and find solutions to help nature thrive for future generations

It’s why we’re in the Arctic researching shorebird decline and working with partners throughout the Americas to protect their habitat.

It’s why we’ve operated our banding lab since 1969, collecting 50 years of valuable migration data used by scientists around the world.

It’s why you’ll find Manomet in communities throughout North America working to understand how forests and intertidal zones can be more resilient to the effects of climate change.

By supporting Manomet, this is the kind of work YOU make possible. Your generosity helps us find science-based solutions to the challenges we face to create a more resilient and sustainable world.
