Grand Traverse Bay Botulism Network
|Who We AreWe are a group of concerned citizens who care about the Great Lakes and are concerned about the significant die-offs of waterbirds associated with Botulism E outbreaks.|
What We DoWe monitor beached along Grand Traverse Bay and Northern Lake Michigan and respond to avian botulism outbreaks. The data we collect will help quantify the scale of waterbirds die-offs and will be used to support efforts to understand the dynamics of botulism events.
Where We WorkWe are working to protect the beaches and near shore habitats of Grand Traverse Bay and Northern Lake Michigan.
How the Network OperatesWhen people observe bird die-offs on the beach, they should call The Watershed Center in Traverse City, Michigan. The Botulism Hotline number is 231-935-1514. The Watershed Center will contact the county coordinator, who will call the nearest Beach Ranger. The Beach Ranger will return the phone call and follow-up as needed. In addition, we are conducting surveys to identify beached birds along established transects.
