Protecting Endangered & Threatened Birds

Resident and migratory birds use the Tijuana Estuary and the coastal bays to rest, feed, and raise their young.  In the spring, San Diego birds start to build their nests.  Did you know that many of the birds that nest within the Reserve nest on the ground?

Way You Can Help Protect San Diego’s Birds

  • Keep dogs on a leash and under control in designated areas.  In Border Field SP, dogs are only allowed at the top of Monument Mesa (on a leash).
  • Pick up after your pet.
  • Keep cats indoors.
  • Do not release any pets or wildlife on the Refuges or Reserve.
  • Become a Shorebird Steward!

With your continued help we can protect all native species.
