Subject: Reminder: A New Revolution in Migration Research at the Reading Public Library on Tuesday Sept 10 Date: Thu, 5 Sep 2019 13:48:47 -0400
A New Revolution in Migration Research: The Motus Wildlife Tracking Network Join Carol Foss, NH Audubon Senior Advisor for Science and Policy, for an introduction to the Motus Wildlife Tracking System at the Reading Public Library at 7 pm on Tuesday September 10. 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 has served 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 northern New Hampshire and a collaborative effort to expand the Motus Wildlife Tracking Network in New England. This free public event is organized by members of the Lynnfield Marsh Survey Team.
