Scientist in the Spotlight: Migratory Bird Conserv...

Presented by Natural History Museum of Utah at Natural History Museum of Utah

Bird migration is one of the most incredible natural phenomena on earth, with tens of billions of birds flying thousands of miles every year. Birds are critical to human wellbeing, providing billions of dollars in ecosystem services. However, climate change is forcing birds to alter their migratory schedule to remain synched with seasonal food abundances. Those birds unable to adjust are declining rapidly.

Join conservation biologist, Joshua Horns, to discover the importance behind migratory bird conservation. Check out the equipment biologists like Joshua use in the field and have a try at extracting a “bird” from a mist-net like they do in the field. Finally, discover some of the simple ways everyone can help birds.
