preserve these flying gems, found only in the New World, Working with
partners in Canada, the United States, and Mexico, they will endeavor to
understand what hummingbirds need to survive when challenged by habitat
loss, pollution and climate change.
The Western Hummingbird Partnership's multi-pronged approach to the
conservation of hummingbird populations includes science-based research and
monitoring, habitat restoration and enhancement, and educating the public
as to how they can be a major and positive component of this endeavor. Dr.
Bonfield will also talk about the evolutionary history of this avian
family, featuring research by Dr. David Inouye.
