A look at all the great events on Orcas Island and the San Juan Islands
Marine science lecture Tuesday night November 13 at 7pm at Emmanuel Episcopal Church’s Benson Hall in Eastsound on Orcas Island.
Where have all the birds gone?
SeaDoc Postdoctoral Fellow, Ignacio “Nacho” Vilchis, has spent the past 2 years investigating the causes of massive declines in marine bird populations throughout the Salish Sea ecosystem.
Come hear which birds are declining the fastest, and what it tells us about the health of our Salish Sea ecosystem.
This landmark study combined decades of marine bird status and trend data from the US and Canada as well as from annual Christmas Bird Counts. Although birds pay no attention to international boundaries, most governments and non-governmental organizations only work in one country. Before this groundbreaking study, no one had analyzed and quantified marine bird declines across the entire ecosystem.
