Bird-banding helps protect rare bird species in Yosemite

Scientific Research

Yosemite is a living laboratory, a hub for research in fields such as biology, geology and climatology. With support from our donors, scientists are working to learn more about the processes that shape the park. How do shifting snow levels affect water availability? What can songbirds tell us about ecosystem health? Such research informs management practices that help protect Yosemite’s habitats and wildlife while enriching the visitor experience.

Data collected through bird banding in Yosemite is helping protect rare bird species.
