WOS Monthly Meeting March 6, 2023
George Divoky, “The Birdwatcher Who Saw the Future Looks Back on Half a Century of Arctic Change”
Divoky began studying Alaskan seabirds in 1970 and, somewhat serendipitously, began to document the story of a species that nests on Cooper Island off Barrow, Alaska: Mandt’s Black Guillemot. Mandt’s Black Guillemot is a circumpolar seabird whose Arctic populations are dependent on sea ice throughout the year. George’s annual research pilgrimages to Cooper Island have afforded the longest continuous study in existence of Arctic seabirds. His research on the Black Guillemots of Cooper Island and the impact of climate change on this population have been highlighted in cover stories in the New York Times magazine “George Divoky’s Planet,” and Audubon’s “Can These Seabirds Adapt Fast Enough to Survive a Melting Arctic?”
On Tues, March 7, George will deliver a parallel but different presentation at Town Hall. Come to one, come to both!
