The Florida Keys Audubon Society’s speaker series will continue on Wednesday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the Key West Garden Club, 1100 Atlantic Boulevard.

Ken Meyer, Ph. D., will give a talk called “How Birds Survive Hurricanes.” 

Meyer is Executive Director of the Avian Research and Conservation Institute, which specializes in using technology for data-driven bird conservation.

“Up until very recent times it was only possible to speculate about how birds survive big storms. You couldn’t really go out an observe them without a serious chance of getting hurt or worse. But recent technology, employed in very crafty ways by Ken and his crew at ARCI, has brought about some amazing revelations,” said Mark Hedden, Executive Director of Florida Keys Audubon.

Meyer will share and analyze data collected by ARCI during Hurricane Irma, and explain what it means about the birds and how they rode out the storm.

Admissions is free and open to anyone who is interested.
