Member Meeting and 'A Bilingual Education Program Conserves Little Terns (Sternula albifrons) in Okinawa, Japan' Speaker Series June 1, 2021
Japan lists the Little Tern (Sternula albifrons) as endangered due to population declines and habitat loss. Their colony in the Awase Tidal Flat is the biggest in Okinawa, but due to dredging and a reclamation project, the main sandbar on which they nest has eroded and fewer birds are using it. New approaches to conservation education can help.
