This project will develop a Guidance Document for Avian Habitat Restoration and Monitoring in Louisiana, which integrates coastal processes and avian ecology requirements with potential coastal engineering and construction specifications within representative individual coastal habitats/regions, based on taxonomic Working Groups. The guidance will address a major knowledge gap and is considered critical in supporting ongoing and future Deepwater Horizon avian restoration activities. Further, the guidance will greatly enhance the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group's (LA TIG) ability to inform the general public regarding restoration of their injured natural resources.
