FREE TALK AT FISH AND GAME:A FRESH LOOK AT NH WILDLIFE IN THE AGE OF CLIMATE CHANGE
CONCORD, N.H. — Climate change is expected to be the largest challenge to wildlife and habitats today, but New Hampshire isn’t sitting idly by. Come learn more about this topic at a free talk at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 19, 2014, at the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, 11 Hazen Drive, Concord, NH. No pre-registration is necessary. Fish and Game is presenting the session in cooperation with the National Wildlife Federation.
At the talk, three biologists will team up to discuss up-and-coming wildlife issues, from moose to birds, you’ll learn about current research and ways to address these threats in our own state:
NH Fish and Game moose biologist Kris Rines will explain the interesting challenges our moose are facing and give an update on the current large-scale moose study occurring in northern N.H.
NH Audubon biologist Pam Hunt will discuss trends in bird movement, including which birds are on the rebound, and which are declining throughout the state.
NH Fish and Game biologist Emily Preston will talk about the recent release of N.H. Fish and Game’s Climate Adaptation Plan, including a discussion about how your community can use this document for conservation in the coming years.
University of New Hampshire (UNH) Cooperative-Extension’s Alyson Eberhardt, a Coastal Ecosystems Specialist, will present the interesting aspect of impacts to our seasonal patterns and how you can collect data to help scientist learn more.
Please join us for a night of learning and planning for action.
