Informing Avian Conservation Through Local Research, Landscape-scale Conservation, and Embracing New Technologies

April 10, 2023 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


Dr. Victoria Dreitz, Director of the Avian Science Center and Professor in Wildlife Biology, will be the featured speaker at the Monday, April 10 meeting of the Flathead Audubon Society at 7 p.m. Her presentation will cover herresearch using adaptive management processes to meet avian management objectives in Montana. She will also discuss birds as bioindicators of landscapes and ecosystems showing which species are most  in need of conservation and show how ornithologists use changing  technology to do research in avian conservation.

Dr. Dreitz earned her BS from Colorado State University and earned her PhD from University of Miami. One of the objectives of her PhD was to develop a monitoring program that assisted in understanding the mechanisms driving the population status of the Snail Kite.
This monitoring program has been used for over 20 years. After many years studying birds in Florida and in Colorado as a research scientist for Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Dr. Dreitz moved to Missoula in 2011 to work with the next generation of wildlife professionals (e.g.,
university students).
