We’ll be giving a talk to the Golden Gate Audubon Society on Thursday July 15. The presentation is entitled “Midway Atoll: 60 people and 2 Million Birds”. The synopsis of the talk is:
“Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge has opened to small groups of visitors again. This nature lover’s paradise supports 17 seabird species, including the largest Laysan Albatross colony in the world. Dave Hartley and Jeanine Lovett’s presentation is based on a trip they took to the atoll in 2009. Through photographs, they will show life in the Albatross colony—including Laysan, Black-footed, and Short-tailed Albatrosses—along with Red-tailed Tropicbirds, Red-footed Boobies, Great Frigatebirds, White Terns, and Laysan Ducks. They will also discuss the environmental issues affecting the atoll.”
This will take place on Thursday July 15; 7pm refreshments, 7:30pm program.
The talk will be in the First Unitarian Universalist Church and Center located at 1187 Franklin street (at Geary), San Francisco.
