Husky Bites presents Special Guest Jared Wolfe

Assistant Professor, College of Forest Resources and Environmental Science
Michigan Technological University

Co-host

Erik Johnson, Director of Bird Conservation, Audubon Louisiana

Topic:

“Here in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, there is an incredible diversity of birds that show up to breed in the summer, but many of these birds are decreasing in abundance—they are diminishing,” says Wolfe. “We’ve lost 2.5 billion birds in North America over the past 30 years,” he adds. “Why?” 

For Jared Wolfe and Erik Johnson, much of their life and work has become dedicated to finding out why—and how. Dr. Wolfe has spent 15-plus years working with tropical birds in Africa, Central and South America. Dr. Johnson has over 15 years of applied ornithological research experience in five countries. 

During Husky Bites, get ready for a wide-ranging, free-wheeling conversation about wild bird research, education and conservation. Be sure to bring your questions for these two world experts. 

Join us early at 5:45 p.m. ET for conversation and a weather update.
