The Kiawah Island Shorebird Stewardship Program, lead by Bette Popillo, is hosting an upcoming Zoom presentation on Tuesday May 10th at 5:30 pm and would like to invite all Seabrook Island Birder (SIB) members to watch a fabulous presenter, Abby Sterling. For those of you who don’t know who Abby Sterling is, she is a shorebird biologist and is the director of the Georgia Bight Shorebird Conservation Initiative.
The title of Abby Sterling’s talk is: “Busy Beaches After Red Knots: Supporting Our Nesting Shorebirds”
A brief description of her talk:
As the last of our Red Knots and other Arctic nesting shorebirds depart at the end of May, the beaches can feel a bit empty. But, tucked above the wrack line and in the dunes, drama continues to unfold. Nesting Wilson’s Plovers and American Oystercatchers are overcoming a host of challenges to successfully incubate eggs and raise chicks. These species are both of high conservation concern, and our actions can have a significant impact on their ability to raise their offspring. Learn more about the secret lives of the beach nesting shorebirds that depend on our backyards, and simple steps that we can take to help them succeed.
