Let's Talk About the Weather.
Speaker, Ken Meyer, Executive Director
Avian Research and Conservation Institute (ARCI)
Ken will focus on how weather affects migrating birds such as the Swallow-tailed Kite, which spends the summer in Florida and the winter in South America. In 1997 he co-founded ARCI - a publicly supported 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to conduct rigorous research that stimulates and informs effective conservation action for vulnerable species of birds. ARCI has studied the nesting and wintering ecology, habitat selection, demography, migration, and conservation biology of 21 species of birds that are at risk and of conservation concern due to rarity, population declines, loss of essential habitats, or sensitivities to common natural and anthropogenic threats.
