Our Purple Martin (PUMA) nest box monitoring program at the Conservation Area Maplewood is a joint program with Wild Bird Trust of B.C. (WBT) to monitor nesting behaviour and productivity.
Purple Martin populations along the West Coast of North America are a Species at Risk throughout their range. Our current conservation and research efforts are directed towards the Blue-listed (Vulnerable) British Columbia Purple Martin population, where with the help of Wild Bird Trust of B.C. we are monitoring the nesting success of the colony at the Conservation Area, Maplewood in North Vancouver.
