*A Galaxy of Falcons*Monday, November 5th 2018, 7:30 pm


Scott Weidensaul, author and researcher



Each autumn, more than a million Amur Falcons congregate in India's remote
northeast state of Nagaland, pausing on a 9,000-mile migration from Asia to
southern Africa. Until 2012, no one in the outside world knew this great
gathering existed -- or that the local villagers were killing hundreds of
thousands of the birds for food. What happened next was one of the most
remarkable conservation success stories in recent years, but also poses
thorny questions about what happens when a poor community does the right
but difficult thing. Join author and researcher Scott Weidensaul as he
discusses his 2017 expedition to Nagaland, and the future of this galaxy of
falcons.
