CROW presents weekly Speaker Series program

By Staff | Feb 19, 2020


Presented by LCEC, the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife’s weekly Speaker Series continues on Feb. 25 with “Wintering Shorebirds of Sanibel & Captiva” by Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation Shorebird Program Manager Audrey Albrecht.

An in-depth look at the interesting life histories of some of the most commonly observed shorebirds on the beaches of Sanibel and Captiva. Many species migrate thousands of miles each way each winter. Learn about the threats they face across their range, and how the recent water quality crisis in Southwest Florida has affected the birds.

Originally from Connecticut, Albrecht has a Bachelor of Science in wildlife conservation biology and management from the University of Rhode Island. She has worked with shorebirds for the last 13 years in various states for several agencies, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Audubon, The Nature Conservancy and United States Geological Survey.

Speaker Series programs begin at 4:15 p.m. in the Visitor Education Center, at 3883 Sanibel-Captiva Road, and are approximately one hour in length. Admission is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 13-17 and free for children age 12 and under. Space is limited, so advanced registration is highly recommended.
