SHARP expands to Nantucket

UConn postdoc Kate Ruskin is bringing the SHARP point count protocol to Nantucket Island in Massachusetts this year.  In 2016, SHARP has formed a new partnership with the Nantucket Biodiversity Initiative, which is funding a season of point counts in tidal marshes across the island.  Kate with the help of another SHARP postdoc at UConn, Brian Klingbeil, conducted the first round of surveys last week.  Highlights included at >12 saltmarsh sparrow individuals (only a couple of males were singing though) and sand driving.
