Jacksonville Zoo Scavenger Hunt
Who loves Jaguars? No, we’re
not talking about our football team, although we still love them, too. We’re
talking cats, big cats - Jaguars. Here’s the thing. We don’t know a lot about Jaguar
reproduction, but our next program on November 17th will feature an
organization, South-East Zoo Alliance for Reproduction and Conservation, that
is studying this.
Another beloved cat is our
endangered Florida Panther. SEZARC is working in the Everglades to insure that
our remaining population has genetic diversity by introducing new genes in the
population. They are also working with the endangered Okapi at White Oak.
SEZARC is on a mission to
save the world’s threatened and endangered species from extinction. Come to our
program on the 17th and lean about how their reproductive techniques
are assisting with this goal.
Pat Anderson, a longtime
member and retiring board member, is the recipient of the Great Egret Award
presented by Carolyn Antman, President of Duval Audubon. This award is
presented to individuals who have made significant contributions to Audubon’s
mission for 20 or more years. After receiving the award, Pat remarked that she
needed Audubon more than Audubon needed her. We’re not so sure about that!
Audubon’s Birds and Climate Change
Report has been released and it isn’t good news for nearly half of the bird
species in the U.S. Decreased habitat and shifting ranges due to climate change
are increasingly impacting the survival of some of our most beloved species.
There is a bit of good news, however. Florida is positioned to play a critical
role in the future of our birds, but we need to be actively engaged in the
effort. Here are some things you can do to help protect birds.
