The Migratory Bird Tracking project creates a continuous zone of influence along the Louisiana coastline allowing researchers access to the data collection on the movements and habitat usage of individual birds fitted with nonotags.

Through a partnership between BTNEP, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries, and the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Foundation, a network of passive VHF monitoring stations has been constructed along the Louisiana coastline. The primary objective of this collaboration is to provide infrastructure for and facilitation of comprehensive research and monitoring of resident and migratory wildlife species, including movements during breeding and nonbreeding season.
