Emily Pollom and John Gorey will present their summer research on seabirds on St. George Island, located in the Bering Sea and part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. This monthly program of Southwestern New Mexico Audubon Society will be Friday, November 3rd, at 7:00 pm in Room 219 of Harlan Hall at WNMU, corner of 12th and Kentucky Streets.

Their presentation will include the cultural and natural history of St. George, a part of the Pribilof Islands. Originally a Russian fur trading outpost, the US obtained the island as a part of the Alaskan Purchase in 1867. They will also share their photos and describe life on the remote island that is home to an Alaskan Native village and the research outpost. They’ll present what their research indicates about how seabirds are faring in this isolated national wildlife refuge.

The Alaska Maritime NWR, https://www.fws.gov/refuge/Alaska_Marit ... lands.html, encompasses 3.4 million acres and includes the volcanic islands of the Aleutian chain and the seabird cliffs of the remote Pribilof Islands. The refuge provides essential habitat for some 40 million seabirds, representing more than 30 species.

John and Emily have worked throughout the U.S. as ornithological researchers with an emphasis on seabird reproductive biology. Since 2009 they have worked as field technicians for governmental and non-profit organizations as well as doing environmental consulting. They have recently decided to make Silver City their home.

The presentation is free and the public is welcome. Light refreshments follow.
