Brief Description:
This talk will include a brief ecological, cultural and conservation history of the California Condor, based on a “behind the scenes” perspective from my work at the Condor Recovery Program in Big Sur, CA.  That will lead to a discussion of what lessons the rest of our country can learn from the struggles of the largest flying bird in North America.

Brief Bio:
My career as a wildlife biologist began in Philadelphia as a student of Jason Weckstein (Associate Curator of Birds) and Matthew Halley (Doctoral candidate) at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University.  I have spent the last 4 years moving between the New Jersey Pinelands, Rushton Woods, the Academy of Natural Sciences, Albania (EU), Costa Rica, California, and– now–the  south Texas plains.  My career goals are geared toward movement ecology, habitat restoration, and scientific empowerment of underprivileged communities around the world, the same communities that I grew up in as a child. It’s a big world out there!
