Talks/Lectures
A Tale of Two “Puffins” (Virtual)
Seabirds are often used in ecosystem monitoring programs as they are well studied and some species are tightly linked to their habitats, prey resources, or climatic/oceanographic conditions. Since 2004 a team of collaborators has been assessing the status and trends of two closely related “puffins,” the rhinoceros auklet and tufted puffin, on coastal and Salish Sea colonies. Scott Pearson from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife will describe the natural history and breeding habitats for these seabirds and compare and contrast population trends, diet, and reproduction of these puffins with implications for the health of these species. Registration is free but required. Participants will receive an email confirmation with the Zoom login info once they sign up.
