Losing Our "Marbleds"

  • Whatcom Museum 121 Prospect St. Bellingham, WA USA (map)

Join me at the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham for my presentation to the North Cascades Audubon Society on the endangered marbled murrelet. What happens when you encounter a strange new bird? You ask a lot of questions of murrelet researchers, field biologists, forest ecologists, timber company executives, and yourself: Why does this bird matter? Why should anyone care about the murrelet? Do we have a moral obligation to save this bird or any other endangered species? Can we all move to the front line to protect earth’s beauty and biodiversity? 

In this slide-illustrated talk, I’ll talk about the natural history of the murrelet, current conservation efforts in Washington, and the important murrelet advocacy work of the Audubon community in the Pacific Northwest. This is event is free and open to the public. This a co-presentaiton by the North Cascades Audubon Society and the Whatcom Museum.  $5 suggested donation/Whatcom Museum members free.
