The Firebird Project brings together a variety of stakeholders to address waterbird conservation along the Gulf Coast. Here you can find out about the many on-going projects under the Firebird umbrella.

Climate change and land-use change are a continued threat to many native species. As a result, habitat management plans need to account for potential changes in weather, invasive species spread, and other complex factors that can affect managed species. Adaptive management provides an avenue for the continual evaluation of species management, because it allows land managers and other decision makers to incorporate previous species’ response to adjust management. We have brought together a team comprised of managers, decision-makers, and researchers to assess the role of prescribed burn on coastal bird conservation. Each year, we will meet and discuss the previous years results and compare them to the managers experiences. This allows for open communication between stakeholders and will allow for changes in assessing species responses to fire.
