At Sea: the Secret Lives of Marine Birds by Dr. Caroline Fox

Thursday, October 5th, 7:00pm to 9:00pm
Centre for the Salish Sea, Sidney BC

Spending months surveying birds in waters adjacent to the Great Bear Rainforest, Caroline Fox and a team from Raincoast Conservation Foundation set out to complete one of the largest marine bird and mammal surveys in a region increasingly threatened by human activities. Weaving together the scientific results of the survey together with the natural history of birds, including those in the Salish Sea, you’ll meet some of the coast’s most secretive species. Caroline will also be reading from her recent book At Sea with the Marine Birds of the Raincoast, published by Rocky Mountain Books.

Dr. Caroline Fox is a conservation scientist and advocate for nature. Her research focuses on the ecology of marine wildlife in coastal ecosystems, including species at risk. Currently a Killam Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Oceanography at Dalhousie University, Caroline undertakes collaborative research on baleen whales. She also works with Raincoast Conservation Foundation to study the ecology and conservation of marine birds on Canada’s Pacific coast.

Support our mobile lab, Tracker!

Our new mobile lab will enable the Healthy Waters Program to deliver capacity, learning, and training to watershed-based communities. We need your support to convert the vehicle and equip it with lab instrumentation. This will allow us to deliver insight into pollutants of concern in local watersheds, and contribute to solution-oriented practices that protect and restore fish habitat.
