Censusing and Monitoring the Species and Habitats of Coastal Maine

Sponsor a Species

   Support the Maine Bird Atlas by sponsoring a Maine breeding bird species.  All sponsorship donations will go toward the completion of the Atlas and are tax deductible.   Sponsorship amounts range from $30 to $2,000 depending on the species.  See the complete list of birds available for sponsoring below.  You can sponsor a species for one, several, or all five years.  You may choose one species to sponsor or many.  You are welcome to sponsor a species in memory or in honor of a person or in the name of an organization.  Each species is only available to be sponsored once for each year of the project.  Once you find the species you would like to sponsor in the list below, click the link above for its corresponding tier and you will be taken to the sponsorship form. 

NOTE: To check that a species still has years available to sponsor, click on the correct tier for that species and select the species from the drop-down menu.  The number of years available to sponsor will be displayed at the bottom of the form.

-       All sponsors will be recognized on this website and acknowledged in the published Atlas.

-       The knowledge that your tax deductible donation is going toward the long term conservation of Maine birds.

Each donation helps support our efforts collecting, analyzing, and preparing these data for publication.  Thank you!
