In 2019, an article in the journal Science quantified a net loss in North American birds of 29% in the last 50 years – WHOA. In this free webinar presented by Sarah Kendrick, Migratory Bird Biologist with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, learn about the declines—especially of grassland birds—but also gain insights on what you can do TODAY to help birds in your everyday life. Attend with an open mind and a willingness to spring into action to help slow declines of our precious birds that enrich our lives and perform ecological functions that keep our world healthy and beautiful.
As the Migratory Birds Biologist for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service in Columbia, Missouri, Sarah Kendrick works with partners to protect, restore, conserve, and monitor bird populations and their habitats for the benefit of future generations. This work is accomplished by ensuring long-term ecological sustainability of all migratory bird populations, educating on socioeconomic benefits derived from birds, encouraging birdwatching and other outdoor bird-related experiences, and increasing awareness of the value of migratory birds and their habitats.
The webinar, to be held via Zoom, will include a presentation and a question and answer session. The webinar will be recorded, and sent to all registrants, as well as posted to our YouTube channel.
