Indoor Program – Brad Winn: Meeting Shorebirds Halfway: Managing Hemispheric Travelers

December 10, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

We have the ability to make things better for shorebirds:  We know enough and we are learning more every day, to maintain and rebuild shorebird populations back to healthy numbers.  This optimism holds true for shorebirds that nest on our beaches, as well as those that are passing through on their way to and from the Far North.  With the recent listing of Red Knot under the  Endangered Species Act, public and regulatory attention has been drawn to a shorebird that doesn’t nest here, yet whose survival is heavily dependent upon our stewardship and management practices.  Brad, Director of Shorebird Habitat Management at the Manomet Center for Conservation Sciences in Plymouth, MA  will talk about these long-distance migrants,  “wind birds” that rely on finding high quality habitat between the tundra and the tropics.  He’ll show photographs of the birds and the landscape these birds need, and will explain some strategies to ensure that these birds are still flying for centuries to come.  The shorebirds are strongly in favor of these efforts!
