The mission of The Trumpeter Swan Society is to assure the vitality and welfare of wild Trumpeter Swans. Since 1968 we have worked to restore Trumpeters over much of their historic range. The staff, Board and growing public membership includes most of the world’s Trumpeter Swan experts. We advocate for habitat and management needs of this magnificent species and have influenced every major conservation and restoration effort. The TTSS website archives Society newsletters (Trumpetings) and its scientific publication (North American Swans). It catalogs an impressive number of swan-related resources and links. Trumpeter Swans are unique to North America and while recovery is strong in some populations, others still face critical threats. A volunteer monitoring project for birders in the U.S. and Canada who wish to contribute field time is currently under development. Members can access professional expertise, attend conferences, assist with field work as volunteers and support swan research. Three of us write for this blog – our Executive Director is John Cornley, Ruth Shea is a contributing Director-at-Large and Peg Abbott is Membership and Outreach Coordinator. We’d like to hear from you.
