The Life and Science Behind Arctic Shorebird Nest Monitoring

April 8 @ 7:00 PM 8:30 PM

 The Arctic takes up a massive part of our globe yet remains an area that seems foreign and mysterious, with a landscape that is hard to comprehend. Unless from a place in the Arctic, most people will not get a chance to visit it, especially in a way that allows us to interact intimately with the environment through seasonal change and migratory periods. Anna’s presentation will shed light on the experience of a remote biological field technician both in the science and day-to-day life; she will share details of the job, the systems used to monitor Arctic shorebird nests, and photos of the beautiful small things in this amazing habitat. Anna Von Duyke has been working exclusively with Arctic nesting shorebirds and Eider ducks for the last five years. As a biological field technician in the remote coastal plains of Alaska since her freshman year of undergrad in 2019, she has experienced much of the spectrum of the field work lifestyle. Anna is excited to share photos and stories of an area so worthy of conservation yet unrecognized by many, due to its remoteness and vastly different landscape.
