Noel J Cutright Bird Club: Orioles of Montserrat

October 4, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Hike at 6 p.m., program at 7 p.m.

Dr. Andy Cassini chairs the Conservation Committee of the Wisconsin Society for Ornithology. He is a conservation biologist and ornithologist who recently completed his Ph.D. in Zoology at UW-Madison. His research involves estimating the conservation parameters for the critically endangered Montserrat Oriole. “My work involves estimating genetic diversity and evaluating the potential for genetic rescue using captive populations. I am also modeling habitat variables in order to better guide land management decisions on the Caribbean island of Montserrat. Finally, there is an education component to my research, in which I am looking at the effectiveness of different ways of delivering conservation information. I also am teaching Conservation Biology classes at UW-Madison and at Alverno College, and in the spring, I will again be teaching a field ornithology class at UW–Madison.”

Fee: Free. No registration required.
