Westbrook on Investigating South African Penguins

The Florida Keys Audubon Society’s speaker series will continue on Wednesday, May 1 at 6:30 p.m. at the Key West Garden Club, 1100 Atlantic Boulevard.

The speaker will be Ellen Westbrook, a longtime Key West resident and a director of the Florida Keys Audubon Society.

Westbrook will give a talk entitled “Investigating South African Penguins.”

Westbrook visited South Africa for a hands on experience, volunteering with Project Earthwatch on a research project, though she had never worked with penguins before.

“With Project Earthwatch, specific training is provided on-site for all projects. All you need to bring is your interest and stamina,” said Westbrook.

Westbrook has been volunteering with Project Earthwatch since 2005.

There will also be a short birdwalk before the talk, beginning at 6:00 p.m. at the Garden Club.

Admissions is free and open to anyone who is interested.
