The Florida Keys Audubon Society will continue it’s speaker series on Wednesday, December 6 at 6:30 p.m. at the Key West Garden Club, 1100 Atlantic Boulevard. 

The speaker will be Peggy Koontz of the Key West Wildlife Center. Koontz will speak about Hurricane Irma and it’s aftermath, and how it effected the local bird population. 

Koontz said that one of the more unexpected things was that, “more animals were taken down by storm-caused pollution than by traumatic injuries from wind and rain.” 

“Peggy and the crew from the Wildlife Center have been on the front lines since the storm. No one has a better idea of the near term effects on our wildlife than she does,” said Mark Hedden, Executive Director of FKAS.

There may also be a guest appearance by Augie the Hawk. 

Chris Guinto, who was slated to speak about crocodiles at this meeting, will be rescheduled for a later date.

Admissions is free and open to anyone who is interested.
