Mather Auditorium, Wells Reserve at Laudholm
Presented by Evan Adams, Migratory Bird Program Director at the Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI) in Gorham
We are aware that mercury is a pollutant. But what do we know about its effects on wildlife? The BRI has recently summarized a decade’s worth of research on mercury contamination in songbirds and bats in the Northeast in a report called Hidden Risk. Evan will discuss how mercury gets into the environment and what the results mean for birds of conservation concern in the Northeast.
You’re invited: All members are welcome at the YCAS board meeting, which will be held at 5pm before the program.
