Flying High – The Journey of Migratory Seabirds with Dr. Autumn-Lynn Harrison

Online Event

Organized by Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History

Join us as we talk with Dr. Autumn-Lynn Harrison of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center and explore the stories of three sister species of jaegers, seabirds that migrate across thousands of miles over ocean and land every year! As we follow the birds from their breeding grounds in the Arctic to locations around the globe, we’ll learn why these birds migrate, how scientists study them and how they survive the challenges they face as they travel the world.

This program is a part of the National Museum of Natural History‘s celebration of World Ocean Day focusing on Hope Spots, places that are critical to the health of our ocean around the globe.

How to Join: The webinar will be presented on Zoom video.
