SIB is pleased to announce our next evening program will feature Dr. James Rotenberg, Associate Professor, Department of Environmental Sciences, at UNCW (University North Carolina at Wilmington), to speak on “The Conservation Status of the Atlantic Coast population of Painted Bunting”

Jamie is an environmental ecologist and ornithologist in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Jamie is known as the “bird guy” in his department. His main research interest focuses on using birds as environmental indicators of habitat change and condition.

He also works on research projects in the country of Belize in Central America. The project in Belize includes research on the bird community of southern Belize as well as Harpy Eagles, migratory Wood Thrush, and rainforest sustainability using cacao (chocolate) agroforestry.
