Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan :: Healthy Bay, Healthy Community


Here is our 2019 photo parade of Ospreys.


The Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan is looking for citizen scientists to help locate and monitor Ospreys/Eagles and/or their nests around the Bay of Quinte. The goal is to establish a long-term monitoring program to ensure the Osprey/Eagle populations remain healthy and abundant.

Citizen scientists are being asked to capture details about Ospreys/Eagles that include: arrival date, nest location, whether the nest is active or not, the number of fledglings and departure date for the fall migration. It’s a simple process.

All you need to do is visit your chosen monitoring site and record details like: whether the nest is active or not, number of adult birds, number of fledglings, and the arrival and departure dates if you know them. Some action shots would be great to add to our website. Send the info in an email to -

As the season progresses and the fledglings become big enough to see in the nest, take more photos and email them in. Family shots are always fantastic!

Community Wildlife Monitoring Program 

Pied-billed_Grebe-web.jpg A BIG thank you to everyone who has participated in the Marsh Monitoring Program. Here is the 2019 report.

By participating in Community Wildlife Monitoring Program you are helping in the rehabilitation and long-term protection of the Bay’s overall ecosystem. As wetland birds and frogs are good indicators of environmental health.

There are two programs, you can choose one or do both, Frogwatch Ontario is a good entry level program and great for the kids due to its simplicity. The Marsh Monitoring Program is more extensive and includes both birds and frogs..

You will receive training and support through the Community Wildlife Monitoring Program. For more information contact Sarah Midlane-Jones, Bay of Quinte Remedial Action Plan, 613-394-3915 ext 214 or Email Sarah Today.
