2015 35¢ Coastal Birds

Coil

 

A great variety of birds make their home along America’s shores.  An abundance of marine life and vegetation supply food for the coastal- dwelling birds.  Because of human activity in many of these places, nesting sites are now at risk.  Volunteers have joined with the National Audubon Society to prevent further destruction of coastal habitats.

 

The Coastal Bird Conservation Program (CBCP) began in 2003 to increase conservation efforts along U.S. coasts, the Mississippi River watershed, and the Great Lakes.  Teams of volunteers take a census of breeding pairs in designated areas to determine nesting populations and the challenges they face. 

 

The Audubon Society partners with wildlife refuges, state and national parks, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to determine a course of action to protect these sites and the birds who live there.  Programs are put in place to stop and reverse the effects of habitat destruction.

 

In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill threatened the beaches along Mississippi’s coast that are the nesting sites of many coastal birds.  The CBCP was able to use its experience to help restore and protect areas affected by the spill.  Migratory and breeding species can once again thrive in this area because of these conservation efforts.

 

The 2015 Coastal Birds stamps feature stylized illustrations by Tyler Lang and were designed by Greg Breeding.
