Hi Birders!

Tonight, Monday, March 12, will be the next monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird 
Club. The meeting will be held at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Doors 
open at 7:00 pm and there will be cookies and conversation starting at 7:15. 
Bird club business begins at 7:30 pm followed by the presentation. All are 
welcome, but seating is limited and if room capacity is reached, the building 
will be locked, so come earl !

Our very special speakers will be Alizé Carrère, National Geographic Explorer & 
Cultural Ecologist and Shawn Billerman, NSF Postdoctoral Fellow at the Cornell 
Laboratory of Ornithology.

The presentation is titled:  Adapt and Thrive: Creatively Living in a Climate- 
Changed World In 2012, Alizé received support from National Geographic to 
conduct research in Madagascar, where she spent several months uncovering an 
unlikely agricultural adaptation in response to severe deforestation. Learning 
of farmers who were turning erosional gullies into fertile pockets of farmland, 
her work evolved into a greater story of creativity and resourcefulness among 
the oft-repeated narrative of climate doom.

Shawn will begin the program with an introduction to the birds of Madagascar 
and the habitats they depend on.This will set the stage for Alizé , who will 
talk about the environmental degradation she has seen and the human responses 
to climate change she has studied.  With the persistence of climate change, 
people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods 
on the ground. At a time when doomsday narratives dominate the current climate 
conversation, adaptation plays an increasingly vital role for both its 
practical application and as a hopeful reminder of our resilience as a species.
