MARCH 13TH: “SENTINELS OF THE SEAS: SEABIRDS, DIE-OFFS & ECOSYSTEM CHANGES”

Puffins, kittiwakes and murres are sentinels of our seas. Their die-offs in Prince William Sound and along Alaska’s coast in recent years is unprecedented and reveals a changing Pacific Ocean ecosystem. Join Robb Kaler, a wildlife biologist with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, as he discusses these changes and how citizens like you are helping to document the possible causes.
