[Video] The STOC in French Guiana

Since 2012, GEPOG has been running a STOC (point count) survey in French Guiana, along with the LPO and MNHN. This participative scientific tool is used to follow the populations of common birds over time, thanks to the help of volunteer observers. Each participant follows a standard route, stopping to listen at 10 points, this routine being carried out twice a year. Since the survey was started, GEPOG has trained more than 40 volunteers, who in turn are able to train future participants. Olivier Claessens, Project Leader for Life+ Cap DOM, reviews this tool and its operation in French Guiana.

Le STOC en Guyane
Depuis 2012, le GEPOG a mis en place le STOC en Guyane, accompagné par la LPO et le MNHN. Cet outil de science participative permet de suivre, dans le temps, les oiseaux communs, grâce à un réseau d’observateurs bénévoles. Un parcours de 10 points d’écoute est attribué à chaque participant qui doit effectuer deux fois par an le suivi. Depuis sa mise en oeuvre, le GEPOG a formé plus de 40 bénévoles qui sont désormais autonomes et apte à former d’autres participants. Olivier Claessens, chargé de mission LIFE+ CAP DOM revient sur cet outil et sa mise en place en Guyane.
