Caribbean Birds & Hurricanes: Responses, Resilience, & Conservation. 2020 has seen a very active hurricane season, and we've been wondering how birds have fared as storm after storm plowed across the Atlantic. It's not all doom and gloom; some species actually benefit over the long-term while others are not so fortunate. Please join us as we learn about the research and conservation efforts underway to face the challenges of climate changes. Dr. Joe Wunderle's interest in birds and conservation  began in junior high school when he participated in Christmas Bird Counts and other activities with the Wyncote Bird Club (now Wyncote Audubon). After a trip to the Maine Audubon camp, he earned a BS in biology at the University of Maine and graduate degrees in Ecology and Behavior at the University of Minnesota. He spent six years in Grenada studying the breeding biology and genetics of Bananaquits and was the director of the Canadian Junior College for Marine Biology in the Grenadines.He has taught zoology and tropical ecology at the North Caroline Sate University in Raleigh, the Organization for Tropical Studies in Costa Rica and the University of Puerto Rico. For 30 years, he conducted research on disturbance ecology with the US Forest Service's International Institute of Tropical Forestry, focusing on identifying conservation prescriptions for bird populations threatened by disturbances due to hurricanes, droughts, agriculture and selective logging. He recently co-authored a field guide to the natural history of The Bahamas and has authored or co-authored more than 100 articles on avian ecology. He is a founding member and past president of BirdsCaribbean and former presndent of the Neotropical Ornithological Society. In June, he became editor-in-chief of the Journal of Caribbean Ornithology, BirdsCaribbean's on-line, open-access journal.
