Date: 8/24/19 7:17 pm From: Linda Ireland <connecttonature00...> Subject: [MASSBIRD] A New Revolution in Migration Research: The Motus Wildlife Tracking Network
With permission of the moderator:
Carol Foss, NH Audubon Senior Advisor for Science and Policy, will present an introduction to the Motus Wildlife Tracking System on Tuesday, Sept 10, at 7 pm at the Reading Public Library. This exciting new research initiative is revolutionizing the study of animal migration by tracking the movements of songbirds, bats, and even dragonflies who have been fitted with tiny radio transmitters (nanotags). Carol will discuss how Motus works, what we are learning from it, efforts that are underway to expand the network in the Northeast (including north of Boston), and how you can get involved.
Carol Foss is a New Hampshire native who has served on the staff of NH Audubon in a variety of capacities for more than 40 years and currently splits her time between environmental policy and conservation science. Her current projects include long-term research on Rusty Blackbirds in Coos County and adjacent Maine and a collaborative effort to expand the Motus Wildlife Tracking Network in New England.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information and to RSVP please contact Dave Williams dave.williams6 at gmail.com or Linda Ireland connecttonature00 at gmail.com.
