EagleWatch Training at UNF Nov 15th - Volunteers Needed to Monitor Eagle Nests PDF Print E-mail

Matt Smith, Audubon EagleWatch Coordinator, will be conducting Florida Audubon’s EagleWatch Training on November 15th at the University of North Florida’s JM Golden Pavilion from 10:00 am- 12:00 noon. This is an excellent volunteer opportunity to monitor Bald Eagle nests in Florida from October to May.

Find out where eagles live and nest in NE Florida. Volunteers can earn volunteer hours for school. Be a part of the expansion of Audubon EagleWatch on a statewide basis. Come to UNF on November 15 and make a difference!

For more information visit http://fl.audubon.org/audubon-eaglewatch or call Carolyn Antman, 904-737-1019 to learn more about the program.


 
November program with South-East Zoo Alliance for Reproduction and Conservation PDF Print E-mail

Who loves Jaguars? No, we’re not talking about our football team, although we still love them, too. We’re talking cats, big cats - Jaguars. Here’s the thing. We don’t know a lot about Jaguar reproduction, but our next program on November 17th will feature an organization, South-East Zoo Alliance for Reproduction and Conservation, that is studying this.

Another beloved cat is our endangered Florida Panther. SEZARC is working in the Everglades to insure that our remaining population has genetic diversity by introducing new genes in the population. They are also working with the endangered Okapi at White Oak.

SEZARC is on a mission to save the world’s threatened and endangered species from extinction. Come to our program on the 17th and lean about how their reproductive techniques are assisting with this goal.


 
314 Species on the Brink! PDF Print E-mail

Audubon’s Birds and Climate Change Report has been released and it isn’t good news for nearly half of the bird species in the U.S. Decreased habitat and shifting ranges due to climate change are increasingly impacting the survival of some of our most beloved species.

There is a bit of good news, however. Florida is positioned to play a critical role in the future of our birds, but we need to be actively engaged in the effort. Here are some things you can do to help protect birds.
