Wednesday, February, 17, 2021
7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
$5.00 per person
Seabirds spend most of their lives over (or under) the water, miles away from the shore. The only reliable way to study them is by living amongst them when they form summer breeding colonies in the thousands on small uninhabited islands. Learn what makes seabirds like puffins, albatross, and storm-petrels so special, find out what techniques we use to study them, and discover how scientists use this information to strengthen ecosystem-wide conservation efforts.
