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. For more information and to RSVP please contact Dave
