Begun in the late 1990’s by Dr. Julia Parrish, the “COASST” program is a community-science project established to identify the carcasses of marine birds found on beaches along the coast of the Pacific Northwest. coasst

A project of the University of Washington, in partnership with state,
federal and tribal agencies, environmental organizations and community groups in the coastal communities of Oregon, Washington and Alaska, COASST works to translate long-term monitoring into effective marine conservation tools.

In addition to conducting field research on seabirds for more than 30 years, Dr. Parrish is the current Executive Director of the COASST program and Professor of Ocean Fishery Sciences at the University of Washington.

Come and join us as we learn about this long-term important community-science program, its
importance for responsible marine conservation, and how we can become involved.
