WHAT: Access the Conservancy’s 2010 report on the status of Florida’s only endemic bird, the threatened Florida scrub-jay.
KEY POINTS: The report — which reflects the hard work and dedication last year of 280 Jay Watch volunteers — shows that the sociable jay continues to struggle.
The scrub-jay was designated as a threatened species in 1987 due to loss and degradation of the Florida scrub habitat upon which the jay depends.
Data generated from Jay Watch is used to plan for controlled burning and vegetation reduction to help restore that habitat.
