Want to learn how USGS scientists learned about the effects of chemical contaminants

in the Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the US? Check out this 2-minute video from our partners at the Chesapeake Bay Program highlighting USGS research on osprey living on Poplar Island. The video features science conducted by Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, one of the two USGS science centers that have since merged to form EESC.

Though this osprey project was completed several years ago, EESC still has scientists studying wildlife and habitats in the Chesapeake Bay ecosystem. More info on current projects here: http://ow.ly/7Xkj50Gc2mM
