Satellite Transmitters for American Avocets

14 March 2014 Published in News & Events

Funding provided by Kennecott through the Rio Tinto – BirdLife International Programme is providing critical information on the migration ecology of American Avocets. A total of 8 avocets were captured at Great Salt Lake during the breeding season and outfitted with satellite transmitters to track their use of the lake and eventual migration. Weber State University student Jeff Cowlishaw and University of Nayarit student, Javier Paniaqua collaborated on the project under the direction of Dr. John Cavitt. For additional information about the study and to track their movements visit the project website at
