“Conservation of the Swallow-tailed Kite: A Hemisphere of Dramatic Ecology and Pressing Concerns”

Speaker: Gina Kent, Senior Conservation Scientist, Avian Research and Conservation Institute (ARCI)

Swallow-tailed Kites are pressured by having a compact nesting cycle in the Southeast, where essential habitats are rapidly disappearing; a winter range now dominated by industrial agriculture; and over 10,000 miles of naturally-dangerous migrations further threatened by our impacts on the global environment. Learn what ARCI has discovered since 1988 with its ground-breaking, year-round research on the conservation biology of this stunning species.

Location - Lakewood Presbyterian Church, 2001 University Blvd W, Jacksonville, FL 32217
Meetings start with refreshments and networking at 6:30 pm and programs at 7:00 pm (unless otherwise noted).
