The East Brunswick Environmental Commission has announced the first lecture in their 2009 series, entitled "Are we in time? The dramatic decline of shorebirds on the Delaware Bay and the efforts to rescue them." The talk will take place on Tuesday, February 24th at 7:30pm at the East Brunswick Library on Civic Center Drive. The talk is free and open to all interested parties.
The talk will feature Dr. Larry Niles of the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ and Dr. Mandy Dey of the NJ Endangered Species Program. They have both worked closely with the Red Knot, and helped to make possible the highly acclaimed PBS Nature special, "Crash: A Tale of Two Species", which chronicles the tale of the Red Knot and the horseshoe crabs of the Delaware Bay.
