Birds, Bugs, and Frogs: The State of the Science Behind Reported Global Declines

February 20, 2020 @ 7:00 pm


Periodically, the scientific community sounds an alarm about staggering declines in global populations of life forms as diverse as birds, frogs, and invertebrates. However, in the Connecticut River estuary, we are witnessing remarkable recoveries of charismatic species such as bald eagles, ospreys, and Atlantic sturgeon. Join Connecticut Audubon Society’s, conservation biologist Jim Arrigoni at the Essex Library on Thursday, February 20 at 7 p.m. as he explains how scientists compile large-scale datasets and explores how to reconcile global reports with our local perspective. Over the past 20 years, Jim has worked as a field biologist throughout the northeast and western United States, as well as in Belize and China. He has taught courses in conservation biology, aquatic ecology and herpetology at SUNY Syracuse and Goodwin College in East Hartford.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.
