Date: 4/12/18 6:21 pm From: bramble <bramble...> Subject: [JERSEYBI] Upcoming Bergen County Audubon Chapter Meeting and Program
Join BCAS on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, for An Incredible Journey: Shorebird Migration, a program by Stephanie Feigin, Wildlife Ecologist for the nonprofit Conserve Wildlife Foundation (CWF).
She will present on the amazing hemisphere-wide migration of red knots and other at-risk shorebirds. New Jersey's Delaware Bay acts as the centerpiece of this globally renowned journey, as shorebirds descend to its shores each May to feast on horseshoe crab eggs. Unfortunately, red knots and other shorebirds have sharply declined in recent years, and their very survival is at stake. Feigin will discuss the shorebirds' migration, the causes of their decline, the innovative scientific projects being done to help the birds recover, and her own shorebird field studies from Brazil to Cape Cod.
Stephanie Feigin is a wildlife ecologist with Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey. She is responsible for CWF's shorebird project, including conservation and research efforts to protect shorebird populations throughout their migratory flyway, including work in Cape Cod, Brazil, Tierra Del Fuego, their Arctic breeding grounds, and here in New Jersey. She is also responsible for the Delaware Bay shorebirds projects, including the restoration of the beach and marsh destroyed by Hurricane Sandy, migratory tracking projects and the banding, resighting and coast wide survey projects. Stephanie received her B.S. in Ecology & Natural Resources Management from Rutgers University in 2013.
Chapter business meeting at 7:30 PM with program immediately thereafter. Meetings are free and open to public and held at Teaneck Creek Conservancy, 20 Puffin Way, Teaneck.
