    Description

    The Shorebird Sister Schools Program (SSSP) is an internet-based environmental education program that provides a forum for students, biologists, and shorebird enthusiasts to track shorebird migration and share observations along flyways. The program?s vision is to engage public participation in the conservation of shorebirds and their wetland, grassland, and shoreline ecosystems along flyways. The target audiences are students and educators. However, facilitating interaction between biologists, students, and educators is an essential component of the program. In addition, numerous volunteer shorebird enthusiasts participate in the program and greatly enrich the information that is shared. Partnerships at the local, state, regional, national, and international levels are crucial for this program to function. Although the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is responsible for maintaining the primary program components that include a web site, list server, and K-12 curriculum, partner input into each component is essential.
