JANUARY 9TH: “LIFE & TRAVELS OF ALASKA’S GLOBETROTTING SHOREBIRDS”

Rick Lanctot, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and Lili Naves, Alaska Department of Fish and Game, will introduce you to Alaska’s globetrotting shorebirds. Travel with Alaska’s shorebirds to the equator and southern hemisphere, tropical islands and foreign beaches, that have essential habitat in their annual migration. Along the journey, meet the people who are working hard to conserve these crucial habitats and, ultimately, Alaska’s shorebirds.
