Migratory shorebirds are difficult to monitor and manage, and populations have continued to decline despite international conservation efforts. Many shorebird species use a network of stopover wetlands to rest and feed during migration. For effective conservation we must understand habitat variation through time and the species that use such habitats. Danica Schaffer-Smith, a Duke University PhD candidate, will show us how she is using sophisticated satellite imagery with her fieldwork to guide shorebird conservation on the West Coast.
Wake Audubon Society Monthly Meetings are free and open to the public. Join us as we discuss environmental issues, bird sightings, and ways to volunteer. The short business meeting is followed by a scientific program on conservation issues. Refreshments are served.
