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.


 
Retiring Board Member Receives Award PDF Print E-mail

Pat Anderson, a longtime member and retiring board member, is the recipient of the Great Egret Award presented by Carolyn Antman, President of Duval Audubon. This award is presented to individuals who have made significant contributions to Audubon’s mission for 20 or more years. After receiving the award, Pat remarked that she needed Audubon more than Audubon needed her. We’re not so sure about that!

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.
