Finding a dead bird on the beach might not be pleasant, but tracking those birds can provide a wealth of important information about the health of our marine and coastal environment - and that information can lead to positive changes. You might be surprised to learn that sometimes finding dead birds can be good news for the environment; although, at other times, the news might not be so good.

The Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team (COASST) is a citizen science project housed at the University of Washington that focuses on the beach environment of the Pacific Coast & Salish Sea.

Established in 1999, over 4,500 participants (on over 450 beaches, spanning four states) have contributed directly to this important citizen science project.

Hear directly from COASST Science Coordinator, Jackie Lindsey, who shares how this project informs scientists, agencies and the public about the state of our ocean and learn how you can get involved as a volunteer.

This week's show includes poetry by Oregon Coast poet and author, Rod Hatter.
