Mercury contamination: Songbirds are "canaries in the coalmine"

York County Audubon will present a program on November 20th at 7:00pm, Mercury in Ecosystems of the Northeast: Songbirds as Sentinels of Contamination featuring Evan Adams, Migratory Bird Program Director at the Biodiversity Research Institute (BRI) in Gorham.

Mercury is a pollutant. But what do we know about its effects on wildlife? The BRI has recently summarized a decade’s worth of research on mercury contamination in songbirds and bats in the Northeast in a report called Hidden Risk.  Evan will discuss how mercury gets into the environment and what the results mean for birds of conservation concern in the Northeast.

This program is FREE and will be held in the Mather Auditorium of the Wells Reserve at Laudholm Farm, 342 Laudholm Farm Road, Wells.
