Galveston Bay Oil Spill

Frequently Asked Questions, updated March 31, 2:30 PM

Galveston Bay is officially re-opened for commercial and recreational use, but what remains to be done for the wildlife still affected?

Houston Audubon will continue to monitor the Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary and other locations directly affected by the spill, or known to be inhabited by potentially impacted birds. Our independent observations and data collections are important evidence as to the short-term effects of the spill and its potential long-term impacts on wildlife, their habitats, and their food supply for which we remain very concerned. If affected negatively, this could impact the habitat’s ability to support robust populations, and especially could affect important nesting behaviors and outcomes. In summary, we are largely out of the woods for the immediate threats, but we will focus on short-term monitoring for the next few weeks and then revert to long-term monitoring..

What is happening at the Bolivar Flats Shorebird Sanctuary, and may I visit?

Houston Audubon is conducting conservation business as usual which means we are managing the land in a way to provide a safe haven for wild birds which feed, rest, and nest there. [More]
