Love, Birds and Changing Climate
"Love, Birds and Changing Climate," a talk by Dr. Kimberly Sue Bostwick, Curator of Birds and Mammals, Museum of Vertebrates, Cornell University. Part of the Explorer Lecture Series at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.
Dr. Bostwick will relate her love of science, nature and birds to the current climate crisis and its implications for biodiversity. She will share her personal response to the climate crisis as a parent and a professional ornithologist by first exploring the "mating games" aspect of her research on Manakins. Club-winged Manakins and their mating antics are fun and fascinating and lend themselves well to conversations about the value of birds and conservation. Bostwick will share specific stories of how birds are responding to climate change and what the future holds for all birds. She will outline a "Simple 5 Point Plan" that bird-lovers can use to organize their own response to climate change, and enrich their own lives in the meantime.
