 Flamingo Census PBI joins Flamingo Census in the High Andes

Click here to read about PBI’s participation in the 6th international flamingo census in early February. PBI supported the effort by sending our Argentinian staff biologist, Lucila Castro, who has been working with flamingos since 2010 as part of the High Andes Flamingo Conservation Group (GCFA –Grupo de Conservacion de Flamencos Altoandinos). The other PBI representative was a volunteer from the United States, D. Eric Harlow, who participated in one of PBI's expeditions in 2013 and returned to Argentina to help PBI and to document the census. You can view his fantastic photographs here, and in the sidebars.

Marine Mammals and Ecosystem Change

Join us on Wednesday, Jan. 14, at 7:00 pm at the Anacortes Public Library. Pacific Biodiversity Institute research scientist Aileen Jeffries will discuss the changing ecosystem of the Salish Sea and describe how these changes have affected marine mammals. She will also highlight the research being conducted, including the acoustic and land-based research she is undertaking on harbor porpoises.


In November, 2014, Aileen gave a presentation at the University of British Columbia's 22nd Annual B.C. Marine Mammal Symposium. You can read more about the university's Marine Mammal Research Unit and the cross-border consortium of researchers here.
