Regional Coordinators

Regional Coordinators (RCs) are the backbone of a breeding bird atlas, and vital to its success. They have two main jobs:

  1. They are the main contact, motivator, and source of information for all atlassers in their region, and an essential link between atlassers and the central office.
  2. They work with the Atlas coordinator to ensure their region is adequately covered, and review the records from that region.

Being an RC for the Newfoundland Breeding Bird Atlas is a big job. RCs should be organized, enthusiastic birders with good communication skills and connections in the local birding community. We encourage RCs to work in teams, to help spread out the workload.

We are currently looking for Regional Coordinators for several atlas regions (see table below). If you’re interested in learning more about this position, take a look at the full job description below, or contact the Atlas Coordinator at cdale@birdscanada.org.
