Good Morning, Please join us tonight for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's last Monday Night Seminar this year. You may have heard about the recent Science paper to come out of the Lab documenting the decline of North America's avifauna. The Lab's own Ken Rosenberg will walk you through some key components of the paper and let you in on empowering actions you can take to bring birds back. This is a great way to wrap your head around some content that touches much of what we do here.
I hope to see you there and please help us spread the word! Sarah Monday Night Seminar 3 Billion Birds Gone: The Bird Crisis and What We Can Do About It November 4, 7:30 PM Cornell Lab of Ornithology, auditorium, 159 Sapsucker Woods Road, Ithaca, NY Ken Rosenberg, Applied Conservation Scientist, Cornell Lab of Ornithology According to research published online in September by the journal Science, wild bird populations in the continental U.S. and Canada have declined by almost 30% since 1970. The study quantifies for the first time the total decline in bird populations in the continental U.S. and Canada, a loss of 2.9 billion breeding adult birds—with devastating losses among birds in every biome. Join Ken Rosenberg, who leads joint research initiatives by the Cornell Lab and American Bird Conservancy, to learn why these study results transcend the world of birds.
