Three Billion Birds Lost: Talk with Dr. Rosenberg
Date & Time
Wed, Jan 29 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
2559 Puesta Del Sol
S.B. Museum of Natural History
Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Santa Barbara Audubon Society, and UCSB Arts & Lectures Thematic Learning Initiative have partnered to bring Dr. Kenneth Rosenberg, lead author of a landmark study on bird populations in North America, to the Museum’s Fleischmann Auditorium for a free public presentation.
A seminal study recently published in the journal Science documents the staggering loss of 1 in 4 North American birds since 1970. Dr. Rosenberg will discuss the analysis that led to this sobering conclusion, what the loss of common birds signals about the health of our environment, and what we can do to reverse these trends and restore bird populations.
