eBird is a massive, unparalleled online database of birder checklists from across the world. Since its inception in 2009, eBird has grown to be the largest citizen science effort ever created. eBird gathers over 100 million bird records every year (and growing) and has begun to inform large-scale research and monitoring efforts. Birdwatching is one of the fastest-growing outdoor pursuits in the U.S. eBird is one of the only ways that any state or organization can quantify outdoor use, use of our public lands and wildlife-viewing use. Come and learn how your state or organization can harness this huge dataset to quantify birder use and birding activity to help further illustrate wildlife viewing's relevancy.
