Saving Florida's Coastal Birds: What Works?

By Dr. Marianne Korosy, Ph.D   7 pm in the FSUCML Auditorium with refreshments available before lecture.  Free and open to the public.

National Audubon Societies were borne out of Florida’s dark past of supporting the slaughter of millions of birds for plumes that decorated women’s apparel in the early 20th century. Audubon Florida has built a hundred-year legacy of bird protection throughout Florida. In the 21st century with a highly urbanized coastline and ever-greater human access to the coastal beaches that support beach-nesting and migratory birds continuing that protection is challenging. Find out – what works now and which challenges are most pressing.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Marianne Korosy is Director of Bird Conservation for Audubon Florida. She worked with Audubon’s coastal program as a chapter volunteer beginning in 2002, helped form the Suncoast Shorebird Partnership and the Florida Shorebird Alliance and also manages Florida Important Bird Areas and Audubon’s Florida Scrub-Jay “Jay Watch” program.
