Manatee Audubon: "Wood Stork Migration in South Florida"

Friday, January 19, 2018, 2:15 AM - 4:00 AM

Wood Storks are still a very threatened species, especially due to loss of habitat as more & more land is developed into commercial & residential areas. Plus, as you know, drought conditions can also affect nesting & roosting habitat. Manatee County is blessed with one of the few Wood Stork nesting rookeries in this area; it is designated as a Critical Wildlife Area to help these birds survive. Dr. Simona Picardi from the Univ of FL Wildlife Ecology & Conservation Dept will share how Wood Storks are coping with habitat loss and what we can do about it. All meetings are open to the public. Social time starts at 6:15 p.m. Our business meeting starts at 6:30, with our featured speaker at 7.
