For one week in January, at the annual Wing Bee, dozens of trained volunteers assist in identifying and recording data on some 25 000 samples. This information on population dynamics, which has been collected annually for three decades, tells us much about how habitat loss and degradation are affecting wetland species over the long term.

Pendant le Grand battement d'aile national, qui dure une semaine chaque année en janvier, des douzaines de bénévoles entraînés aident à identifier 25 000 échantillons et à noter les données qui les concernent. Cette information sur la dynamique des populations, récoltée chaque année depuis trente ans, nous en dit long sur l'effet à long terme de la perte et la dégradation de l'habitat des espèces vivant dans les terres humides.
