Monday Night Seminar

Birds of the Wildest Isle: Expedition Report from St. Matthew Island, Alaska

Monday, April 22nd 2019, 7:30 p.m. Eastern Time


Speaker: Andy Johnson is an associate producer in the Cornell Lab’s Conservation Media program.


Learn about the recent Cornell Lab and USFWS expedition to St. Matthew Island, Alaska, in the Bering Sea — the most remote wilderness in the United States. Andy Johnson joined Irby Lovette (Fuller Professor of Ornithology) and a small team of biologists for a month on the uninhabited island last June, to study and film the endemic McKay's Bunting and Pribilof Rock Sandpiper. But on this rarely visited outpost, the team also found signs of a dramatically changing ecosystem.


Monday Night Seminars are free and open to the public. Join us in person in the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's auditorium, or watch online with the live-streaming video below. 


Please note: Monday Night Seminars are moving to a new website! You can find all of our archived seminar videos, along with upcoming seminars and other live events, on the Bird Academy Live Events page. You can watch this month's upcoming seminar there too!
