Conservation Science at Audubon Canyon Ranch

Thursday, October 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $5

For 30 years, Audubon Canyon Ranch has been studying the ecology of wintering and migrant shorebirds and waterbirds in the Bay Area. Find out what they’ve learned, as well as the results of their 50 years of work on herons and egrets throughout the Bay. This will include a presentation of data on movements of the first-ever satellite telemetry-tracked Great Egrets on the West Coast of North America.

Nils Warnock is Director of Conservation Science at Audubon Canyon Ranch. Nils is a Fellow of the American Ornithological Society and has over 30 years of experience pertaining to the ecology and conservation of Pacific Flyway birds, especially shorebirds. He has a PhD in Ecology from the University of California at Davis and San Diego State University. Nils started his ornithological career at what was then the Point Reyes Bird Observatory (now Point Blue), serving for 10 years as the co-director of the Wetlands Division. Until recently, Nils was the Executive Director of Audubon Alaska and a Vice President of the National Audubon Society.
