On Wednesday, June 19th, Tucson Audubon Society presents a special guest Living with Nature lecture by Dr. Mark Avery, lifelong birder and past Conservation Director for England’s Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). For 12 years, Mark led the RSPB’s lobbying of government, buying of nature reserves, and outreach work with farmers, foresters and other stakeholders in an effort to bring back bird species from the brink of national extinction.
Mark will describe some of the conservation successes and challenges involved with those efforts and share his perspective on the differences between the US and British birding scenes! He will also tell us what he is doing in Arizona, doing research for a book on passenger pigeons and extinctions!
