Fundraising Campaign Update
Yesterday we were working on installing a T-1 internet connection on site and I will be visiting the site on Tuesday to set-up some additional equipment which I expect will increase the image quality. I will keep you posted on our progress. This new installation should also allow users of Real Player to watch the birds and should increase the frames per second from 15 to 30.
A huge thank you to all your donations this past week. We are making real strides towards our $50,000 goal. Since we started the campaign we have received $7,700. You support is absolutely wonderful and not only is going towards the camera, but it also going directly towards our contaminant and eagle research. The staff at BRI are gearing up for an exciting field season where we will be catching everything from bats to thrushes to seabirds to osprey to look at mercury levels. We will also be initiating a first of its kind contaminant study where we will be measuring the levels of 102 different compounds in birds from multiple habitat types across Maine.
