Thank you to everyone who tuned in this year to watch osprey parents Josie and Elbert raise another brood of chicks! All of our ospreys are currently away from the nest and most likely have migrated south. We look for the return of Josie and Elbert in early Spring and will update this page at that time.

In the meantime, please be sure like us on Facebook for the latest updates on the osprey as well as other natural events around the Gulf of Mexico. You can also check out The Nature Conservancy's Cool Green Science Blog for more features on animals and conservation.

The Nature Conservancy and its partners are working to restore vital coastal and estuarine habitats throughout the Gulf – oyster reefs, seagrass beds, sand dunes, coral reefs, marshes and bird areas. This work is critical for re-building Gulf fisheries that are essential to human communities and native wildlife like the osprey.

This project is funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation through The Nature Conservancy and the Alabama Coastal Foundation. Computer hardware and bandwidth supplied by the City of Orange Beach. Thanks to Baldwin EMC for the osprey platform and Harbor Communications for support to install the new camera.
