BIRDS OF THE GREAT BEAR RAIN FOREST
Dr. John Reynolds holds a BC Leadership Chair in aquatic conservation at Simon Fraser University, and is the Chair of COSEWIC (Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada).
His research team has been studying links between nutrients from salmon carcasses and bird populations on the central coast of BC for over a decade. Their studies range from scavenging birds in estuaries to breeding birds in forests. They have also been studying breeding bird populations on 100 remote islands, including links to nutrients derived from seaweed and river otters.
His talk will showcase the rich diversity of bird life in our Pacific coastal rain forest, with a few deviations through other species along the way, ranging from insects to bears.
