Digital Cocktails & Fishtales – A Tale of Two Species: Improving species conservation by managing human behavior

*Due to the pandemic, this presentation will take place on Facebook Live

A Tale of Two Species: Improving species conservation by managing human behavior 

Kristin is excited to chat about the ecology and conservation of a threatened seabird, the Marbled Murrelet, and about how visitor education efforts can reduce the impact of one of the most important murrelet nest predators, the Steller’s Jay.

Kristin Brunk is a PhD Candidate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is interested in human-wildlife interactions and behavioral ecology and how we can understand them both to improve conservation efforts. She has been studying the behavior and conservation of birds from Common Loons to Wood Storks to Nazca Boobies to Black Rails for almost 10 years.

Cocktails & Fishtales is Harbor WildWatch’s science-social series. Held monthly, these programs feature a scientist, researcher, or environmental artist on an ecological topic. While these programs are traditionally 21+ and held at a local taproom or venue, during the pandemic they have shifted to an online format for all ages. They continue to serve as an engaging and interactive way to learn about the environment, and bring together eco-enthusiasts from our local community… and, now, beyond. Questions and interaction are highly encouraged!

Cocktails & Fishtales are educational events. As such, Harbor WildWatch does not endorse any speaker, service, or product represented at Cocktails & Fishtales.
