May 2014 Data Archiving Summary

LaMNA featured on
US Forest Service Research & Development Website


Our purpose is to bring together people who monitor birds, from the smallest bird banding and censusing stations to large bird observatories and government agencies and to preserve data for the future. Some of our goals are to:

  • increase communication between researchers through newsletters and meetings,
  • facilitate cooperative research projects spanning regional boundaries,
  • make bird banding data available to a wide audience,
  • provide tools to researchers and managers for data exploration and analysis, and
  • preserve data from loss.
