"Imperiled Seabird and Shorebird monitoring along the Florida panhandle Gulf Coast"
Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Building 13/ Room 230
Join us to learn about the challenges of monitoring the beach-nesting birds of Florida's panhandle. Presented by Caroline Stahala Ph.D. (Panhandle Shorebird Program Manager). Seabird and shorebirds have adapted to deal with a range of natural forces, including major storms, predators, and an ever-shifting coastal landscape. Layered on top of these natural challenges are the major disruptions to coastal ecosystems caused by human activity, as well as the longer-term threats associated with climate change. Please join us November 14, from 4-5 Building 13, Room 230. For more information, please contact Faculty Host, Ms. Chasidy Hobbs at firstname.lastname@example.org
We hope to see you there!
