Duke Lectureship

The Duke Lectureship was given to a sold-out house on Friday, October 1. Dr L. David Mech and Mr. Mark Martell gave wonderful presentations of their work with wolves, and several raptor species. Dr. Mech has taken a yearly trip to Ellesmere since 1986, and talked of the information he was able to learn about the wolves there, before and after he was able to use a radio collar on a wolf. Mr. Martell has gathered data related to several aspects of natural biology on Swainson's hawks, Broad-winged hawks, osprey, and bald and golden eagles.

Gail Buhl, TRC's Education Program Manager, talked to folks afterwards with the help of several of our winged ambassadors. Thanks to Irene Bueno for the photos.
