The Seal River Watershed—currently being proposed as an Indigenous Protected Area—is a vast and vibrant landscape encompassing 50,000 km2 (12 million acres) of northern Manitoba. It is one of the last great wild places on our planet. Caribou and polar bears roam beneath massive flocks of birds near an estuary teeming with beluga whales.

In a unique collaboration between Audubon and the Seal River Watershed Alliance, Indigenous knowledge and expertise are being combined with new sound recording and analyses technology to learn more about the birds of the Seal River Watershed.

Indigenous Elders and youth are deploying automated sound recording units across the land to capture early morning and evening summer soundscapes. These sound recordings are then being analyzed at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology to identify the bird species.

Join us for this free webinar with CPAWS and Seal River Watershed Alliance to learn how our bird song project got started, what has been discovered so far, and how the data is being used to help build the baseline biodiversity inventory for the watershed and aid the Seal River Watershed Alliance’s work in conserving this special and globally unique area.
